People Who Care seeking volunteers
The next People Who Care volunteer informational meeting will be from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the People Who Care office, 505 W. Gurley St.
People Who Care volunteers provide caring non-medical assistance for adults unable to drive due to age-related and/or physical limitations, according to a news release. This allows an individual to continue living in their own home and remain independent as long as safely possible.
People Who Care is a community-based nonprofit with programs in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Dewey and Chino Valley. Volunteers help in the community where they and enrolled neighbors live. The majority of our neighbors live alone, the release states.
People Who Care offers volunteer assistance with a one-to-one situation by helping with: transportation to health care/business appointments, grocery shopping, personal paperwork, visiting, caregiver relief, and more
Reaching out and assisting neighbors is a “feel good” opportunity for both the person volunteering and the one receiving the volunteer assistance. For more information or to enroll, call the Prescott office at 928-445-2480.
