NATURE & PURPOSE OF SERVICE SITE:
Since 1974, Catholic Charities has operated community residences to help individuals achieve their highest level of functioning and to participate as fully as possible in the surrounding community. As they are able, residents participate by doing their share of the household chores, such as laundry, cleaning, and meal preparation.
USD volunteers with Catholic Charities – Siena Residence can assist with a variety of projects for the residents, including Fall decorating and/or arts and crafts. A light lunch is included. Please note: Catholic Charities requires a completed volunteer form to be submitted to your team leader no later than Wednesday, September 6th. **Your team leader will send the form as an email attachment.
