From Longview Community Ministries:
We have recently experienced the loss of some experienced volunteers through aging or illness and is in need of interviewers and back up for phones, filing, etc. Ideally, interviewers would commit to one morning a week and backups would be on call for when needed. This is truly an opportunity to serve this Ministry to help those less fortunate. Empathy and compassion are the primary requirements to be able to help. Details can be obtained by contacting Assistant Director, Donna Spencer at 903-753-3561, ext. 205 or emailing .
