Senior Companion Volunteers Needed
September 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The Senior Companion Program in Lane County needs more volunteers to help frail elders and adults with disabilities stay independent by providing them with weekly friendly visits.
The program has nearly 70 clients in need of a volunteer, in the communities of Springfield, Eugene, Cottage Grove, Junction City, Creswell, Veneta and Florence.
Companions earn a tax-free hourly stipend of $2.65 plus reimbursement for meals and mileage. Applicants must be age 55 or better, meet low income guidelines, serve 15 or more hours weekly, and pass a physical exam and criminal background check. Complete pre-service training, ongoing support, and fun events are provided.
For information about volunteering, call Elaine or Beth at (541) 463-6260 or visit online at www.lanecc.edu/SCP
