Be a CREST Volunteer

                 Be A CREST Volunteer & Make A Difference

     Do you have a few minutes to spare? Looking for something interesting to do? Consider becoming a volunteer with CREST! It’s an awesome opportunity to meet seniors and caregivers, plus brighten their lives and make new friends. Your time will make a difference in their lives and enhance yours as well.

     CREST volunteers talk on the phone a lot as they give people who are homebound a new voice to hear and share with. It’s comforting to know that someone cares about them and is checking in with them. Many of our seniors are limited in their ability to be out and about, especially during this CVOID-19 time. A call from you will make their lives less lonely and help those four walls to widen.

     CREST volunteers drive seniors to medical appointments, the bank, the library, grocery shopping, hair appointments, and even to lunch. Most trips are local, but some trips for medical appointments might be to Rochester, Sioux Falls, Mankato or the Twin Cities. For these trips gas cards are provided to help with expenses.

     Currently, there are restrictions that prohibit us from going into homes to help with cleaning and small repairs. BUT, the need for your time continues to grow. Imagine the joy you will bring and even the relief that help is available. Then imagine how it will make you feel to have made it happen!
