Rainbows Facilitator for Summer Session
Caring, empathetic volunteers are needed to facilitate groups in our Rainbows program. Rainbows is for kids (K-12th grade) who have suffered a loss in their family due to death or divorce. Volunteers lead participants through a curriculum that help them understand and express their feelings and direct their energy toward a healthy acceptance of the changes that have taken place. Training is provided. Facilitators need to be available from 5:30-7:30 pm on Wednesdays this summer (June 13-July 25; off week of July 4).
Help a local senior citizen by mowing their lawn this summer (small city lot). Work can be done at volunteer’s convenience – approx. once a week or as needed.
Driver - on an “as needed” basis
Take a Senior Grocery Shopping
By assisting a local senior with misc. projects, you will be allowing him or her to continue to live in their own home. We’ll contact you as projects arise. Some of these might include: minor fix-it jobs, changing a hard to reach light bulb, cleaning gutters, etc. This is a great opportunity even if you work full time. Projects can be done when it is convenient for you and the time commitment is minimal.
