I am a local senior that lives in the Belfair area. I was so happy when Faith In Action brought me gifts for Christmas as part of their Gift for Grannys program.
I was so delighted with the robe that I was given for Christmas and the slippers.
These are the nicest slippers I have ever had!... and they are really wonderful.
My husband used to buy me nice robes like this, but he has been gone a long time.
I was also touched by the darling doll that was given to me,it really touched my heart.
I cannot express how thankful I am for these gifts and for Faith In Action.

I became involved with Faith In Action West Sound (FIA) in 2011 through a Motorcycle Organization I belong too. After the initial contact I became a client of FIA in that I enlisted their help in assisting a family member of mine. During this contact I found the FIA personnel to be very helpful, discrete, and accommodating. They were a life saving entity for the family member thus a great help to me since I did not need to go through the stress and strain of dealing with the family issues, at that time I was going through some issues myself and their help allowed me to deal with those issues unabated. I was so impressed with what FIA did/does, I became a volunteer and eventually a Board Member. Now I am the Board Vice President which allows me to pay forward what FIA did for my family and ultimately me. Great organization that is committed to helping the Seniors and Disabled in the North Mason, South Kitsap, and West Pierce County areas.

I have personally met people who are greatful to be able to enjoy some social time by having a connection to their community and for others it has helped meet their basic needs such as warm meals affordable clothing etc. Not to mention the benefits it brings to those who volunteer having the opportunity to give back to their community and have a sense of belonging where they wouldn't otherwise have.

I have been with Faith in Action since it's founding in 2001. I have watched it grow and flourish beyond my wildest imagination. We began as a small group of volunteers who served the seniors in our community so that they could stay independently in their own homes for as long as possible.

One of the most requested services we provide is transportation. This may sound like a mundane thing to do, but it is huge in the lives of our seniors. We have had many recipients in need of kidney dialysis three times a week for months on end. These people, with no family close, no resources for hiring drivers, and without their own transportation would die without our help. Others have no way to get their groceries, of get to physical therapy or doctor appointments, or to visit a friend. Our cheerful volunteers are there to help.

I am currently helping a lady who was hit by car, by taking her to regular doctor and physical therapy appointments, lawyer appointments, grocery shopping, and church. Over the past year, we have become good friends. She often says that I have changed her life, but I think she has changed my life even more. Most of our volunteers feel this way, too. Serving others enhances our lives.

Faith in Action also has a Thrift Store, that sells merchandise a prices all can afford, as well as providing clothing and household items free to those in dire need.

Currently we are building The HUB - Center for Seniors, to open in early 2016. It will serve as a Senior Activity Center, a central place for seniors to find services locally, and a larger Thrift Store; as well as a community gathering place.

I highly recommend this charity. It serves the community well.
