March 26, 2017 by Cathy Doud
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia are organizing a volunteer day on Saturday, April 8, to help people in Concordia that need assistance with yard work, light housework and removal of bagged trash.
Individuals, groups or organizations interested in volunteering are encouraged to contact Laura Hansen, Administrative Assistant of Development and new Volunteer Program Coordinator with the Sisters of St. Joseph, at (785) 243-2113 ext. 1221 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. Saturday in the east parking lot at the Nazareth Motherhouse, 1300 Washington St. Clean-up supplies will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves and to wear work clothes and closed-toed shoes.
Those needing assistance were asked to fill out an application form at the Concordia Senior Citizens Center by March 31. Priority was given to those with physical limitations, including the elderly and people with disabilities.
The volunteer day will precede the City of Concordia’s planned Spring Clean-Up for residential areas during the week of April 10-14 .
