Many opportunities for you to help…
Donate for ongoing benevolent care, room sponsorship, spiritual support and/or maintenance of the stations of the cross. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use!
Experience the joy of helping…
We have many needs for volunteer help, from resident visitors to act as companions for our residents, to housing facility maintenance, to food pick-up and delivery from local businesses to our facilities to insure that our residents are fed. There’s nothing like the feeling of helping someone in need.
