A Little Help in North Fork Valley is our rural effort to serve elders and their neighbors in Paonia, Hotchkiss, Crawford, and Somerset. We are launching our services in Paonia at the end of the summer as we continue to recruit new volunteers and senior members. If you would like to get involved in this effort, please contact the office at 970-527-3482 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for volunteers to help with outreach and event planning, direct services for our elders (transportation, yard and home chores, handy and technology help, friendly visits…), and strategic planning.
We are looking for elder members who may need a little help with work around the house and yard, driving to medical appointments, grocery stores, and social events, changing light bulbs or other handy projects, caregiver respite, or socially engaging with neighbors.
If you know folks who may need a little help, we’re happy to contact them. Or please provide our contact information and we’ll look forward to taking their calls.
Our NFV Service Saturday! is May 13th at 9 a.m., meeting at Apple Valley Park Pavilion. Service Saturdays! begin with coffee and pastries as we split into work teams and continue until noon as we serve at our members’ homes. Service Saturdays! are an opportunity for our seniors to have a little help with various yard and home chores like weeding, cutting down vines, raking leaves, cleaning out refrigerators, flipping mattresses, dusting high fans and mirrors, bringing out patio furniture, and completing handy fixes. And it’s a chance for individuals, families with young children, and groups to volunteer- our age range of volunteers is 2 to 89 years old and we’re happy to coordinate groups like corporate volunteers, church groups, scout troops, and Americorps members. Please RSVP here.
