Mercy Care seeks volunteers

TUPPER LAKE — Mercy Care for the Adirondacks is recruiting new volunteers and has scheduled a Friendship Volunteer Training Program for Tuesdays, Feb. 12 and 19.

The training sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Tupper Lake. Attendance both mornings is required to complete the training.

Volunteers serve as advocates for individual aging people to obtain the services they need, help elders stay connected to their communities, and work to enhance the quality of life of older adults in the Tri-Lakes.

Anyone of any faith in the Tri-Lakes area who is interested in becoming a friendship volunteer is invited to take the free training in Tupper Lake. Pre-registration is required.

To request registration information, contact Sheila Schneck at 523-5583.
