Dear Editor,

Marinette County Elderly Services would like to recognize and thank all who participated in our Spring CHAIN Reaction Day. Nearly 200 area volunteers donated over 430 hours of their time to provide outdoor chore services, including raking and window washing, to homebound older adults.

Thanks to their dedication 21 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 wanted to thank you for sending all those people to rack and pick up my yard. Stand back and keep looking how nice it looks and saying, wow. What a great performance you hand out. Thanks so very much.”

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.
