Help out our community by sharing your skills as a volunteer with the St. Louis NORC. The St. Louis NORC (Naturally Occurring Retirement Community), a non-sectarian neighborhood program operating in the Creve Coeur area and whose mission is to help older adults remain living at home, is in need of volunteers from the community. Here’s a snapshot of their needs:
• Minor plumbing, electrical, and “handyman” home repairs - Change a faucet washer, replace a furnace filter, program a remote control, organize closets, rake leaves and weed flowerbeds are just some of the needs around the home in need of assistance.
• Troubleshoot computer software or hardware problems - Train older adults to use a computer. Help them solve the mysteries of why their computer won’t do what they want.
You determine your own schedule; even an hour a month is welcomed.
