What a busy week of busy seniors and volunteers! We managed to get everyone where they needed to go - each week that's a challenge!
We also were able to provide a pick-up of prescriptions and delivery of a wheelchair for an evacuee from Port Bolivar, who lost everything in Hurricane Ike...
Hope everyone has a restful weekend - we continue to add many new clients that need help getting around so be sure and tell your friends about the opportunities to volunteer with us - we would love to have them as part of our awesome volunteer force!
Thanks for all you volunteers do - we appreciate you! Keep your eyes open for an invitation to another Volunteer Appreciation coffee - coming soon!

Just a little FYI - last year in September, FIAC Northwest provided 189 round trip rides - this past September, 2008, we had an amazing 391 round trip rides! This the most rides ever for us...our rides have increased consistantly all year long! Tell your friends and neighbors - we need more volunteers!
To help keep our volunteers, donors, clients, and other friends up to date on all that we do at Faith in Action Caregivers Northwest, I thought I would start a blog! I'll try to keep you up to date about all we are doing, how many rides you (volunteers) provide - you will be amazed, and other fun news about events we might have coming up in the future! So check back every so often, I might not get to it each day, but will try to stay on top of things!
