SEARCH (Seek Elderly Alone, Renew Courage & Hope), a program of Catholic Charities, is looking for families, singles, retirees, college and high school students to volunteer a few hours a week to seniors who need a helping hand.

The volunteers will help provide companionship, assistance with grocery shopping/errands for senior clients who live in Kennebec County. The program currently has seniors waiting for help in the Augusta, Hallowell, Randolph, Waterville, Winthrop and in the Winslow area.

Those interested in becoming a volunteer, or know of a senior person who is isolated and may need this kind of support, can contact SEARCH Program Coordinator Lynn Kidd at 530-0137 or [email protected].
