The volunteers and board members at Interfaith Caregivers of Washington County are extremely appreciative of all the people who have helped over the years including Mike Falkner, who was inspired to join Interfaith as a driver for needy senior citizens in the community.
Mike said he probably gets more out of the time he spends with seniors than they do. “After hearing about Interfaith during the annual fundraiser I stopped by the office, filled out the forms and I’ve been driving ever since,” he said.
Everyone involved in Interfaith Caregivers is doing their part in helping make the life of area senior citizens that much easier.
“It’s a very rewarding opportunity in both directions,” he said. “I look forward to every Tuesday and I’ve developed such a nice relationship with the people I’m working with.”
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.
