CARE – Team Volunteers

The Premier Designs “Heaven” necklace is so well thought out and was certainly an “appropriate” gift from you–thanks so much!

Blessings,

Maude


Thank you for considering volunteering with Koinonia Senior Care, Inc.!  We could not exist without our volunteers giving their time, talents, and treasures to God’s work here at KSC.  We try to find unique and creative ways to show our appreciation throughout the year to our faithful, self-sacrificing volunteers!  You are priceless!  Whether our volunteer is a professional, retired, college student, home-school family, business group, home team, small group, Sunday School class, stay-at-home mom, or another compassionate individual seeking to serve our Lord, Koinonia Senior Care offers a variety of unique ways to volunteer.

Even as a young ministry, in 2013, KSC recorded 2,984 hours of volunteer service.  Our volunteers range in age from 3 to 91 and include moms, retirees, home-schooled families, high school students, and a therapy dog.  In 2013, we encouraged 310 families with our monthly newsletter (both through snail mail and through email); we touched 40 seniors with gifts through our Blessing Gifts ministry; we provided fellowship, assistance, respite and/or errands for 15 seniors; and we encouraged 18 widows and widowers as many were freshly grieving the loss of their spouse and beginning a new chapter of identity and purpose.
