We rely on our Willard Family Volunteers! to support the needs of our 65+ Willard Neighbors.
We match our 65+ Willard Neighbors in need with our Willard Families. This is a way for the whole family to help, parents and siblings participate in assisting our neighbors. The experience builds connections between our families and our 65+ neighbors and all parties benefit by giving back!
