Boone County Coucil on Aging Seeks Volunteers
The council on aging is hoping to find volunteers or groups of volunteers willing to help.The seniors do not have family or resources to take care of their lawns. They need help from now until the end of the summer.
Although he works as a volunteer at the local senior center Don Avery says he needs his own volunteer for the things he is no longer able to do.
Right now the Boone County Council on Aging has 19 seniors on a waiting list.
"They got a volunteer to cut my grass for me. And that's a volunteer helping a volunteer," said Avery. "And that's what we need in Columbia is more volunteers to help anybody who needs help."
If you'd like to offer help, you can contact the Boone County Council on Aging.
