Companion volunteers honored at luncheon
Sablack, a Manistique resident who passed away last year, was a longtime CAA board member. Fifty-two volunteers were honored at the annual recognition luncheon.
Senior Companion volunteers provide companionship and assistance to frail elderly, mental health clients, assisted living home, nursing home and foster care residents and adult day centers.
CAA is currently recruiting volunteers for the program. Volunteers should be 55 years of age or older and have a passion and desire to help others. Companions are paid a non-taxable stipend and transportation reimbursement.
