Checking In On Those In Need
EL PASO - One group of volunteers will be calling seniors this week to make sure they are safe in the winter storm.
The Retired and Senior Volunteers have a "Calling All Seniors" program, in which one senior calls another to check in. The service is free for anyone over age 55 and callers are matched up based on common interests. So far over 50 residents have signed up to volunteer; they'll call about 250 seniors who were referred by agencies around El Paso.
If you'd like to volunteer or know someone who could benefit from this service, call 541-4025.
