Being There in a Time of Need
St. Elizabeth Hospice is seeking non-medical volunteers to provide services that allow terminally ill patients to remain in their own homes. Volunteers assist patients and their caregivers with caregiver respite, patient companionship, listening and emotional support, shopping, yard work or household chores. Next free training provided on February 11th. For more information please contact Diana at 765-423-6924.
Therapeion Have Several to Choose From:
First, volunteers are needed to staff the tack and feed shop. The hours are Tue-Thurs from noon until 6pm, and Fri and Sat from 10am-3pm. Volunteers can pick their hours but they are asking for a weekly commitment. This would be a great opportunity for a retired person who loves horses. All proceeds from the shop are used to help support programming at Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center located just southwest of Brookston.
Second, new volunteer training sessions begin in February to get ready for the spring semester. Details are on
website. They need volunteers who will be able to help during classes held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3pm until 7pm. Volunteer for one or more hours at a time. Contact Therapeion for more information or call (765) 414-8066.
Third, Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center is seeking three individuals to join its Board of Directors. Candidates must be committed to helping persons with disabilities, youth at risk, and abused children. Previous board experience is a plus. For more information contact Therapeion Director Libby Marks-Shepard at (765) 414-8066.
