Mobility Aid volunteers are ready to help LWers
The Golden Age Foundation’s (GAF) Mobility Aids program couldn’t function if it wasn’t for its dedicated volunteers.
The phone line is open 24/7, but the messages are usually received Monday-Friday, between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Any calls after 4 p.m. or over the weekend will be answered the following day by a volunteer.
Volunteers make sure to call every person who leaves a message to answer questions or to help start the process of receiving or returning a mobility aid.
A mobility aids volunteer is one of a few GAF volunteer positions that can be done at home. These volunteers were instrumental in keeping the mobility aids moving during the pandemic shutdown. The volunteers would receive messages and relay them to the program chair every day to make sure LWers received what they needed.
Volunteers continue to keep Mobility Aids program running smoothly. The program’s new chair, Brenda Thomason, has smoothly stepped in and manages the program very well.
For more information about receiving/returning mobility aids, call the GAF mobility aids phone number at (562) 431-9589.
The GAF is nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization. For more information, go to www.GoldenAgeFdn. org.
