I just want to thank Foley Area CARE and Catholic Charities for offering the living with chronic pain seminar. It really helped me in two days. First it gave me understanding on how to live with chronic pain, and secondly it showed me that I am really lucky compared to others in the seminar. Thank you for working together to ...
My experience partnering with Foley Area CARE has been a positive one. Foley Area CARE was easy to work with and helpful while working together to reach the energy assistance needs of mutual clients. I look forward to continuing the partnership in reaching those who could use our assistance.

When I started volunteering for seniors my goals was to help seniors stay in their homes as long as they wanted to & were able to do so. I thought if we could help them with a few services they no longer could perform they could stay at home & be healthier & happier! I soon found out I was getting more ...
Why do I volunteer? It seems like such as easy question until you have to put it into words. Sometimes there are no words to describe the sense of fulfillment you get when you realize you have just helped someone or just given them the feeling they matter. It’s a great feeling to help put a smile on someone’s face, ...
Thank you for your wonderful work at the Chili Supper. It was a marvelous way to bring our community together to support the continued dignity of the elderly. Good food, good company and good cause. Thank you for making a positive difference.
Thanks so much for everything you do. I can depend on C.A.R.E. to be on time for rides and I don’t have to worry about anything. What great volunteers. At my age I’m lucky to have people like you and friends too!
The C.A.R.E. Program helps keep me independent. All my children work during the day or live too far to help me. C.A.R.E. is my life, my way to go grocery shopping, doctor appointments, church, and shopping. Their volunteers take good care of me. We all need to support their fundraising event and all the good they provide the community.
We wouldn't have a CARE program if we didn't have volunteers. We need funding, but we also need volunteers. There’s a whole bunch of caring people out there.
I appreciate rides to appointments. If my kids can’t take me to the doctor or to St. Cloud, volunteer drivers are always available.
It’s heartwarming to give back to the people who gave so much. We ought to give back for all that people have done. Volunteering is one way to do it without costing an arm and a leg.
A benefit of volunteering is the satisfaction that you’ve helped someone. It makes me feel good that I’m able to do that.
Dewey Place Fitness is fun! What better way to spend a half hour!
I joined the exercise group because I was feeling sluggish and wasn’t getting anywhere. It has enlightened my life drastically. There are wonderful ladies, some I knew, some I befriended. We even take our instructor out to eat with us!

I’m more social and active because if volunteers didn't care about me I wouldn't get anywhere.
More people need to get involved. If you can’t be a driver, get involved with other fundraisers or activities. It takes all kinds of people.
I feel a lot different. I have more energy and I’m not so sore or stiff. It even did my head good, I think!

I can’t do exercise any other place or at home, so I like it in the community room. It’s more fun in a group.
