Faith in Action sets volunteer orientations
CHARLESTON — Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley (FIAGKV) is a local nonprofit dedicated to helping seniors in Kanawha and Putnam counties sustain their independence and remain in their own homes as long as possible. They do this by matching neighbors with time and talents to share with senior neighbors in need.
Program volunteers provide free transportation to medical appointments or the grocery store, running errands, making telephone reassurance calls or friendly visits, and more.
As an all-volunteer service organization, FIAGKV is always striving to grow its base of people willing to reach out to help, neighbor to neighbor. FIAGKV volunteers have the flexibility to select assignments that fit their schedules and interests. Whether they have two hours a week or two hours a month to offer, these volunteers can make a direct, positive impact on the lives of seniors in our community every time they participate.
Upcoming volunteer orientation trainings:
5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13: Putnam County Library (Liberty Square)
6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17: Bible Center Church
6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1: Southridge Church
All FIAGKV volunteers are required to attend one orientation session prior to serving. These sessions are free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. For more information, call 304-881-7253, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.faithinactiongkv.com.
