I would like to bring attention to a service for senior citizens in this area. It is called 'Faith In Action." Many don't seem to be aware of this volunteer service. I became aware of it last winter when I had foot surgery and couldn't drive but needed to get to appointments in Rochester and Kasson.. The volunteers picked me up at my door and delivered me to the door of the clinics. They were very helpful and kind. Friendly too. One time a volunteer picked up and delivered groceries for me. There is a small fee based on income to cover mileage. I was very pleased with the service and will use it in the future . Next time you Seniors need a ride give them a call. Friends, neighbors, and kids aren't always available because of work or other conflicts.
They have other services available beside transportation. A few are companionship/ friendly visit, Light housekeeping, outdoor chores ( mowing, raking, snow removal, gardening, trimming ) Odd jobs/home repairs, and more. To contact Faith in Action call 634-3654 or toll free 888-634-3654
These volunteer services assist senior citizens to maintain independence in their home environment.
Also if you would like to be a volunteer call them.
