Interfaith Network of Care Needs Your Help!

Be part of the solution: put your faith into action - Interfaith Network of Care, Inc., a Faith in Action Program, www.interfaithnetworkofcare.org  of which our congregation is a member, is currently in need of volunteers. We are looking to recruit additional drivers to assist people and take them to their medical appointments. This could be a great way to help someone else maintain their independence! Don’t you hope others would be there for you if you suddenly couldn’t drive, or broke your hip, or were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis? Be part of the solution-call Interfaith Network of Care today at 732-247-1655. Your commitment could be a few hours a month or more depending upon your availability. We hope to hear from you!
