Are you retired? Are you bored? Do you have a few hours a week to help others?
Outreach has many opportunities available for you to reach out and help someone in the community.
We have need of drivers to take seniors to doctor appointments, physical therapy appointments, and/or grocery shopping. Maybe you would just like to visit with someone to ease their loneliness. Play cards with someone.
Do you enjoy being around the younger crowd? I am talking teenagers and pre-teens. We need someone to plan and chaperone youth nights once a month for high school and junior high kids. We have a wide variety of things at Outreach to do. We have two Wii systems with several games to play, a pool table, air hockey, foosball, board games, and card games. We offer refreshments and lots of good times.
You do not have to be a senior to do this just enjoy being around kids and socializing with them.
If you think you might be interested in this just give Sharon a call at Outreach at 309-928-9400 and discuss the possibilities.
One final opportunity is someone to clean the activity room. Run the sweeper, dust, mop floors, and take out trash. This takes about 1 hour to hour and a half and can be done once a week. Again if you are interested call 309-928-9400.
