LFV doings!  |   July & August 2018

Remember that we can assist with more than just a ride. We can also help with household tasks, visits - in person or on the phone, transitioning back home after a post-acute stay, handyman assistance, errands, getting organized, helping to find answers to a variety of questions you may have, technical assistance and a whole lot more. Just call or email the office
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers for making LFV a community of Neighbors Helping Neighbors!
 
 
During the past month, these volunteers assisted with transportation, including driving the van on LFV outings, phone & in-person visits, tech/handyman assistance, water aerobics classes, administrative, planning assistance, participating on Committees, and working on a HUGE mailing!!!
