SENIOR RIDES AND MORE
This non-profit agency has served the elderly and impaired in our community for over 12 years by offering transportation to doctor appointments, grocery stores and prescription pick ups. The agency also provides telephone reassurance, minor household chores and other necessities that assist in keeping our elderly and frail independent in their homes. The calls for these services have increased by 60% since January 2006!
An important portion of Volunteer Interfaith Caregivers, Southwest’s (VIC-SW) operating budget ($70,000.00 per year) is provided by St. Laurence along with seven other local churches. The remaining donations come from grants and private donations. This agency also relies heavily on the generosity of its trained and insured volunteers’ time.
In the coming fiscal year, many of the previous volunteers are not able to be as involved as in the past and there were grants that are no longer available to VIC-SW. They are asking for your help to maintain services to our elderly by donating your time and treasure. Without your help, these services will be lost to this aging population. Please strongly consider how you might help Volunteer Interfaith Caregivers, Southwest!
To make a monthly or one time donation or to volunteer your time, please contact Annette Bisanz (parishioner/co-founder) at 713-772-8181 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please visit our website at www.vic-sw.org. Our fax number is 713- 838-9976.
We so appreciate your consideration as well as the consideration for our elderly population.
