Here is an interesting fact about ElderHelp...we had a total of 538 volunteer hours of help donated in January 2014. Without our volunteers we would not be able to help out low income SENIORS with wheelchair ramps, railings, grab bars, minor home repairs, firewood and information/referral services. Many thanks to everyone that helps make this possible. If you would like to volunteer or partner with us monthly by making donations, call the office 208-661-8870.
Saturday, January 18th was such a great day...splitting and delivering wood with our ElderHelp of North Idaho Wood Delivery Dump Truck. It is finally up and running again. FIVE (5) cords of FIREWOOD were split and delivered to seniors who have very little means to keep themselves warm.
Please consider volunteering
supporting us financially.
Many, many thanks to our current volunteers who come out to volunteer each and ever Saturday...you are a BLESSING!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
