CVAA needs area volunteers

STARKSBORO Mia Brown and AmeriCorps need your help. Want to make a difference in your community? Have some time to spend chatting with a senior or adult with a disability? The Champlain Valley Agency on Aging (CVAA) and Neighbor-to-Neighbor AmeriCorps are looking for volunteers to visits elders in Addison County, said Brown. If you have an hour a week and like to talk, we want to introduce you to a senior in need of companionship. The goal here at CVAA, said Brown, is to help people age with independence and dignity. CVAA serves people 60 and over in Addison and Chittenden counties. Volunteers play an integral role in providing our clients with support and companionship through a variety of activities such as friendly chats, balancing checkbooks, grocery shipping, reading, running errands, going on outings, etc. The schedule is flexible and the rewards for both the volunteer and the senior are enormous, she said. Brown is looking for volunteers in Starksboro, North Ferrisburgh, and Leicester. For more information about these and other volunteer opportunities, call Brown at 1-800-642-5119
