The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to help with its annual bell-ringing campaign in Vernon County.
The bell-ringing takes place at Village Market, Nelson Agri-Center and Walmart, all in Viroqua. Bells will be rung daily at all three locations through Dec. 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Volunteers can take one- to two-hour time slots.
Volunteers interested in scheduling a time slot at Village Market may contact Karen Dahl at email@example.com. To set up a time to volunteer at Walmart and Nelson Agri-Center, contact Linda Gilardi at 637-2216 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers at Village Market ring bells indoors, and those at Walmart and Nelson Agri-Center are outdoors.
A Wisconsin state board is seeking advocates for nursing home residents in long-term care, recruiting especially volunteer ombudsmen in Vernon and surrounding counties.
Volunteers will be screened, trained and assigned to a nursing home in their community, under the direction of Jenny Knudson, volunteer ombudsman coordinator for La Crosse, Adams, Crawford, Grant, Jackson, Juneau, Monroe, Richland and Vernon counties.
The Wisconsin Board on Aging and Long Term Care is seeking the volunteers, with the main criterion being a desire to make a difference in the lives of residents receiving long-term care.
For information and to volunteer, call Knudson at 608-789-6366 or 800-815-0015.
