Kids in school and you want to stay busy and meet new people?

Or maybe you’re looking for a weekend family activity that will make a difference in someone’s life.

Perhaps you are retired, but would be willing to share some of your skills.

If any of these sound familiar, you have come to the right place! By volunteering regularly or for a special event, you can share in our mission of love for the elderly, and you might just be surprised at what you get back!

Many of our volunteers say they came here to help with the elderly – perhaps to honor a deceased loved one’s memory – expecting nothing in return. But all agree they received far more than they gave in friendship, wisdom and a new appreciation for the elderly.

For information on volunteering at the Jeanne Jugan Center please contact Alice Grego at volkansascity@littlesistersofthepoor.org or call 816-761-4744
