LifeStream Services is joining the nation in celebrating volunteers and the impact they have on organizations, communities, and individuals during the month of April for National Volunteer Month. LifeStream Services relies on volunteers to meet the needs of the people we serve and our community at large.
Between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020, we had an astounding 766 individuals volunteer a total of 19,330 hours of their time to LifeStream Services and those we serve. To put it simply – LifeStream volunteers make it happen. In the last year alone, they:
- Passed out food to seniors in need at 12 Senior Safety Net locations and 20 curbside meal locations.
- Assisted in delivering 866 AngelWish gift baskets.
- Created handmade quilts, scarves, hats and dish cloths to be shared during the holidays.
- Made phone calls to seniors who are experiencing loneliness during the pandemic to enjoy a simple phone conversation.
- Created virtual tours of local attractions for seniors to enjoy during travel restrictions due to the pandemic.
- Delivered over 200 shelf stable food boxes during urgent situations
- and so much more.
This is just a drop in the bucket of all that our volunteers do. Please take the time to thank volunteers in your community who do so much for others.
