Happy New Year Twin Ports!

Our first Board Meeting is January 19th, and we are looking forward to getting our dates scheduled for the Volunteer Roundup, Volunteer Training and setting the date for the start of the season.


Every year, we put the word out for new volunteer
opportunities. If you or someone you know is looking for a chance to contribute to the community and have a great time doing it, we have a spot for you! Visit here for more information on becoming an SLRE Volunteer!

We are also looking for one, possibly two Board Members to join our program. We need caring, committed members, and Senior living experience is a plus. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month, from January through October.

Our sponsors are our major source of funding and we are so grateful for those that support us every year. We suspended our program in 2020, and we are still feeling the financial impact of that challenging year. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, we would love to hear from you! Sponsorship information is available on our Sponsor Page.

Please call me at 218-390-1910 if you would like to know more or if you have any questions. It would be awesome to have you join us!

through the support of businesses,
organizations and a dedicated
experienced staff of 100% volunteers.
