Dear Editor,

Marinette County Elderly Services would like to recognize and thank all who participated in our Fall CHAIN Reaction Week.

Nearly 70 area volunteers donated over 117 hours of their time to provide outdoor chore services, including raking and window washing, to homebound older adults. Thanks to their dedication 13 homes were completed throughout Marinette County.

The service they provide is priceless to those they help as shown by the abundance of wonderful cards and letters received. A Marinette area woman wrote “I am so glad there’s CHAIN Reaction. I can’t help people like I used to. I’m 87 and I need the help now. Thank you and God bless.”

Thank you to our CHAIN Volunteers. Just a few hours of your time has a profound impact on the lives of those in your community. We could not provide this service without you.

Just a reminder that Spring CHAIN is set for April 25 to May 9, 2020.
