VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! HELPERS is seeking Volunteer Drivers to provide transportation services for our area seniors for medical appointments in Bville, Fargo/Mrhd, & Fergus Falls. We are also seeking volunteers to add to our Meals on Wheels once-a-week delivery team. This need is heightened over the winter months as many of our volunteers go south for the winter. Drivers are reimbursed for mileage. If you have some spare time and the heart of a volunteer, please contact us. We’d appreciate having you on our team!
