Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers Inc
February 25, 2011

This organization does so much with so little. It's incredible. Hundreds of volunteers help hundreds of people right here in our community. The quality of life that Caregivers provides to the elderly and disabled in our community is heart-warming. No one wants to tell a someone they can't or shouldn't drive anymore. And if that means they can't stay in their home, it can be heart-breaking.

Caregivers enables people to stay in their homes and live their remaining years in comfort and with dignity. Caregivers through its volunteers offers so many services to those in need: they deliver groceries; they provide car-rides - getting people to doctor visits; they provide money management, which can prevent fraud targeted at our vulnerable senior citizens. They do this and so much more.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the smiles on people's faces when you help them. Helping someone else when your only reason for doing it is that it's the right thing to do can be the most gratifying feeling on earth.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage them to continue bringing youth in as volunteers. When young people help older people, there is an exchange and learning that goes on - both are so much better for the experience.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I've helped sort groceries in a joint event with interfaith relief as well as actively work on fundraisers including their recent highly successful event at the Wine Kitchen in Leesburg.
