WAFER-Senior Share are in need of volunteers to deliver a box of food to 6-10 homes one day a month (3rd week of the month). It takes 2-3 hours and is a rewarding experience.

Volunteer Drivers are needed to transport clients to appointments.You pick the times and days you are available to volunteer and we provide mileage reimbursement (currently 54.5 cents per mile).

Gundersen Clinic is in need of the basic Blue Wrap bags with the white thread. If you can help we have the material, thread and patterns. Stop in and pick some up!

The Telephone Reassurance Program is for adults who would benefit from a daily call. If you are interested in receiving a call or making calls please contact Ruth at RSVP for more information
