Thank you to all our volunteers

It’s National Volunteer Week, and Lake County Council on Aging would like to raise up our agency volunteers and applaud the work that they do!

The direct service and assistance that our volunteers provide to area seniors helps them to stay independent longer and feel less isolated. In fact, the majority of our 600 volunteers serve our senior clients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis! With only 49 staff throughout our seven agency locations, agency volunteers out-number staff 14:1. We truly couldn’t do what we do without you!

Thank you to All Our Volunteers

This winter has been a challenge for most of us. We have heard the news report that this is one of the harshest winters we have experienced in the last 20+ years.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers who have continued to deliver meals, help prepare meals, grocery shop, visit, and provide insurance consultation to our clients. You have weathered the never ending winter storm this year and have selflessly helped others. We are all thankful for your continued support and dedication.
