Volunteer Drivers Needed
There are many seniors and adults with disabilities living in Waukesha County in need of a ride to the grocery store or medical appointment. Thanks to Interfaith Senior Programs’ volunteers, people in need can receive a ride at no cost to them, and remain independent in their home. Volunteer as little or as often as you’d like and choose which area to drive in. To become a volunteer driver, please call Anna at (262) 522-2402 or email her at AnnaR@InterfaithWaukesha.org.
 

Snow Removal Help Needed

Interfaith Senior Programs is looking for volunteers to serve a senior by shoveling their sidewalk and driveway during the winter season. This is a great group or family opportunity. Your help not only keeps a senior or adult with a disability safe in their home, but it ensures they will receive their home delivered meals, since these services will not deliver to a home with snow or ice in the driveway. For more information, please call Anna at (262) 522-2402 or email her at AnnaR@InterfaithWaukesha.org.

Volunteer Drivers Needed
Volunteer drivers are needed to help deliver a hot meal to homebound seniors living in the Waukesha area. Drivers use their own vehicles but are reimbursed for their gas mileage. Meals are picked up at the Waukesha Health and Human Services Building on Riverview Avenue. Help out once a week or twice a month from 11:00 am -12:30 pm. If interested, call the ADRC at 262-548-7829 or visit the website and click the volunteer tab, www.waukeshacounty.gov/adrc
