Jim's Story

At the Gathering Site, we have Family Caregiver Connection and RSVP volunteers who go out of their way to ensure client needs are met. *Jim, who is legally blind; feels included because of volunteers’ efforts to make oversized bingo cards, playing cards, and reminiscing cards so that he is able to participate in games and brain activities with his peers. Volunteers also work with him one-to-one to provide step-by-step instructions for all activities.

Without RSVP volunteers, Jim may not able to take part in activities with his peers. If you would like to learn how you can make an impact by becoming an RSVP volunteer; call Tricia at 763-422-7090 or email: Tricia.Lehti@co.anoka.mn.us *Indicates names have been changed to protect identities.
