Washington Co., WI – Interfaith Caregivers of Washington County is singing the praises of its volunteers and giving “thanks” to Senior Corps for an $82,500 grant it just received.
“This is exciting news for our organization and the community,” said Interfaith Executive Director Janean Brudvig.
The mission at Interfaith is to connect senior citizens with caring volunteers in Washington County.
“The grant will further allow us to recruit and engage our volunteers who provide rides to medical appointments and the grocery store,” said Interfaith Communications Director Clare Robbe. “Our volunteers also visit and bond with lonely and isolated seniors and the grant will help engage volunteers with elder-abuse prevention.”
“The grant will allow us to impact needs of senior citizens in our community and thanks to all the volunteers; we couldn’t do this without you,” said Brudvig.
Interfaith Caregivers provided over 14,000 rides to senior citizens who need transportation to critical services including doctor appointments.
“Our services provide a family feel,” said Robbe. “Our clients can rely on our volunteers and they like that volunteers sit with them and wait at their appointments so they don’t feel alone.”
