ORGANIZATION: Iowa Department on Aging RSVP


Neighbor to Neighbor Call Program Volunteers connect with assigned seniors for a weekly social telephone call. Each volunteer caller telephones their assigned companions at least once a week for a call lasting 15 - 30 minutes for a duration of at least 8 weeks. Typically, one to two companions are assigned to each volunteer. Volunteers may start conversations related to the interest of the companion, discuss current events, have a movie or book discussion, or reminisce about the past, etc. Time commitment is a minimum of 15 minutes per week per assigned call recipient.

Perfect way to make a difference from home! Contact Ingrid Stukerjurgen, IDA RSVP Coordinator for Shelby County at ingrid.stukerjurgen@iowa.org or 515-975-3075.
