Take Grafton woman to the Food Pantry

Mow lawn for a Saukville senior
Help a local senior by mowing her lawn this summer. Do the work when it is convenient for you - approx. once a week. Your assistance will be very appreciated!
Occasional Ride to Froedtert Hospital Needed
Looking for a volunteer that is willing to drive an Ozaukee County senior citizen to Froedtert Hospital once a month or less. A round trip ride is needed but you would have time in between to shop at Mayfair, read a magazine or go out for lunch!
Take a Senior Grocery Shopping
Several area senior citizens are looking for volunteers to take them grocery shopping - either every week or every other week. Provide a ride to and from the grocery store (some of them need a little assistance at the store as well). We can match you with a senior that lives in your community. Help once a week or once a month - whatever works for you.
Caring, empathetic volunteers needed to facilitate small groups in our RAINBOWS program. RAINBOWS is a 12 week peer support group program for children (K - 12th grade) who have experienced a death or divorce in their family. Volunteers are needed 6:15 - 7:45 pm two Tuesday evenings a month from October 2015 through March 2016. Training will be provided.
Driver - on an “as needed” basis
Start Date: Any time
Our senior clients rely on volunteers to take them to medical appointments, the grocery store, the pharmacy, etc. Let us know what day(s) and times might work for you and we will contact you as specific needs arise. At that time, you decide whether or not you can help with that particular need. Very flexible. You can make a big impact in the life of a local senior by providing just one ride a month.
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.
