Volunteers needed in Iroquois County!
Catholic Charities’ Senior Companion Program (SCP) is looking for people 55 years and older who are interested in visiting with another senior who is homebound and living in Iroquois County. The possibilities are endless: have a cup of coffee, take a walk in the yard, go out to lunch, shop, or transport to an appointment. This is strictly a friendly visit, no homecare duties are involved. Benefits include: *Tax-free hourly stipend (does not affect Social Security or income-based assistance), mileage reimbursement, monthly in-service education, community service recognition, paid time off and holiday pay! (*Volunteers who meet the income guidelines will receive a tax-free hourly stipend and a mileage reimbursement for time spent with clients).
Volunteering as a Senior Companion is a fantastic way to meet new people and give back to the community. You too can be a part of this wonderful program that has enriched the lives of so many for decades.
