The volunteers and board members at Interfaith Caregivers of Washington County are extremely appreciative of all the people who have helped over the years.
Whether it’s driving a senior citizen to the grocery store or a doctors appointment or even doing a little light house keeping.
Everyone involved in Interfaith Caregivers is doing their part in helping make the life of area senior citizens that much easier.
Laury Schwartz is chairman of the board of Interfaith. “I volunteer at the West Bend Public Library, I find excellent books to read and I’m also not in front of the TV or anywhere near the refrigerator,” he said.
Schwaratz also volunteers at the Red Cross, the Washington County Housing Authority and with the local election commission.
“I get something out of it but more importantly I give back to people who may not be as well off as I am.”
Be sure to stop out Monday, June 17 from 10 a.m. – noon at the West Bend Public Library to see how easy it is to volunteer at Interfaith. Organizers will also be at the Jack Russell Memorial Library in Hartford on Thursday, June 27.
Giving time to Interfaith Caregivers is a rewarding experience.
Whether it’s getting a group together to clean up an elderly neighbor’s yard or simply folding a fresh load of laundry, your time makes a real difference! In the end, don’t be surprised if you forget who’s helping who.
