FOR SENIORS - Non-contact needs

Thank you so much for all the food you brought over to us. It was great not to have to think about dinner. Our bruises are fading! Thanks also for bringing the carolers, they brought a lot of cheer…thank you for the pretty poinsettia, too.

OUR PLEDGE TO PROTECT

We value the character and integrity of our employees and our volunteers.  We also value the safety and protection of the vulnerable population whom we serve.  In order to safeguard both, this ministry has joined Intellicorp in conducting criminal background history checks on the volunteers and employees who have unsupervised contact with the elderly, children or persons with disabilities.  

Please talk with this ministry for more information on this process.
