HOW TO GIVE HELP
Individual volunteers who speak English, and those who are bilingual in English and Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, Farsi,, or French make weekly calls to our clients. They check on the same client(s) each week to make sure they received homecare services and see how they are doing. Friendly visitors can provide companionship, conversation, cook a meal, help complete a task, or go for a walk. Volunteers who are interested in driving a client to the doctor, the grocery store, to run errands, or to deliver food from Manna Food Pantry are also needed.
Groups can help with lawn care, interior painting, spring cleaning, organizing, preparing for a move, providing a meal, or social events.

Our clients would benefit from gift cards for grocery stores and big box stores such as Target or Walmart. Gifts at the holidays are always welcomed, as are care packages at any time. School children have donated greeting cards they have created to celebrate holidays like New Years, Mothers Day, First Day of Spring, and more. Occasionally, a senior client is in need of a specific appliance or piece of furniture. We generally request these specific items in our monthly newsletter or through social media.
Donations can be delivered to our 1010 Grandin Avenue office during normal business hours, or call 301-637-0730 to make arrangements.
