Catholic Charities desperately needs senior dining help
Options include preparing food, set-up dining sites for meals, serve meals or clean-up after meals.
WADENA — Catholic Charities’ work is embedded in this community through the local senior dining site. And without volunteers, this work cannot happen. Last year, thousands of volunteer hours were donated to benefit the programs of Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities is requesting individuals donate a few of their life’s hours to help fight food insecurity in your hometown. We are in desperate need of volunteers to provide meals for seniors in your area, according to a Catholic Charities news release.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:” 1 Peter 4:10
Volunteer opportunities available at senior dining sites include:
- Prepare food in kitchens
- Set-up dining sites for meals
- Serve meals
- Clean-up after meals
“Volunteers are critical to fulfill the mission of Catholic Charities. We can’t serve the Central Minnesota community without them,” said Annie Henriksen, volunteer coordinator. “I am thankful for each and every volunteer, for the work they do and the hope they inspire.”
