How You Can Help
SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders)
Specially trained volunteers can assist with health insurance
by answering questions, providing information, comparing policies,

of Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries.

Volunteers deliver meals to homebound seniors Monday - Friday between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Volunteers can be scheduled anywhere from one day a month to five days a week, depending on their interest and availability.
