Interfaith Volunteers Recognized
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Volunteers are commonly referred to as unsung heroes. On Friday, the Interfaith Volunteer Caregiver Association recognized 15 volunteers at an appreciation lunch.
The executive director of the group says the recognition was long overdue.
"They just are angels, they are wonderful, they help people who don't get help anywhere else or wouldn't get help anywhere. They'll sometimes be the only person one of these people that we help will see in a day or in a week," adds Edie Unland, Executive Director, Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers of Magic Valley.
The volunteers represent Lincoln, Jerome, Gooding and Twin Falls counties. More volunteers are welcomed.
Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers (IVC) of Magic Valley provide free services to the frail, elderly, chronically ill and disabled adults. They assist these people so that they can remain living independently in their own homes.
