Immediate volunteer needs

  • Brandon Woods Retirement Community will be decorating for the holiday season from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 21. The community needs volunteers to help hang decorations and lights, put together Christmas trees, and bring the spirit of the season to the residents. For more information, call Carol Kellogg at 838-8000.
  • ICAN needs volunteers who can help local senior citizens with sporadic and ongoing yard care needs, such as raking leaves and mowing. Volunteering can be flexibly arranged to fit the volunteer's schedule. This can be a great volunteer opportunity for families to do together, can teach youth people about having concern for elders, and can make a real difference in the lives of independently living seniors. For more information, please call ICAN at 749-2005.
  • The Roger Hill Volunteer Center has published its annual How to Help at the Holidays brochure, which provides information on many volunteer and holiday donation opportunities in the community. The brochure details how volunteers may assist different charitable organizations during the holiday season, adopt-a-family and adopt-a-child for the holidays programs, and when volunteers are needed to assist with free holiday community meals. The How to Help at the Holidays brochure is available by calling the Roger Hill Volunteer Center, 865-5030, or by visiting any Lawrence-area Capitol Federal Savings branch or the United Way Center, 2518 Ridge Court, Lawrence.
