Community Angels Show Support of Faith in Action Volunteers

Web posted December 6, 2022
Faith in Action for Cass County Volunteers work to make a difference in our communities almost every day of the week, providing neighborly help to people of all ages. To date in 2022, 96 volunteers have served 321 people throughout Cass County, primarily older adults and families in need. These volunteers provided 2000 rides, including critical rides to dialysis 3 times a week. They delivered over 4000 home meals to rural areas and spent over 850 hours building ramps and helping with chores and home modifications to help people stay in their homes and communities.

During this Holiday Season, you can be a “community angel” supporting Faith in Action’s volunteer services to people in need with an ornament on our Angel Tree. Donations made to Faith in Action before the holidays can be dedicated “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone you love or care for. These dedications are written upon special angel ornaments that decorate a tree in the Faith in Action office in Hackensack. By making a donation to Faith in Action in support of volunteer services, you can be an angel to many others in your community.

Faith in Action Volunteers serve the community by providing friendly visits, telephone reassurance, caregiver respite, meal delivery, homemaking, chores, minor home repair, ramp building, and transportation to medical appointments, grocery store, food shelf or other errands. Volunteers choose when and how they want to volunteer and receive liability insurance, mileage reimbursement and service coordination.

As “Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” Faith in Action volunteers provide dignity and hope while lending a helping hand and connecting people with community. Faith in Action relies on local support to spread the word about available services, volunteer opportunities and the need for financial support. If you know anyone in need of a friendly neighbor during the holiday season, or if you are interested in volunteering in the New Year, please contact Faith in Action at 218-675-5435. email cassfia@uslink.net, or check out stories about the on our website at www.faithinactioncass.com.
