Visitors needed for children, seniors

Child and Family Services is looking for volunteers to serve as 'Friendly Visitors'

Friendly visitors are needed to visit the homebound elderly on a regular basis. Volunteers might chat, read, play cards, or take their elder for a ride. The most important consideration is to be a good listener. Elders are waiting for visits in Newport, Middletown, and Tiverton.

Also needed are visitors for a 7-year-old boy in Newport and a 12-yearold in Middletown whose families do not have the time to devote to them.

Anyone with several hours per week to share with a senior or child should call CFS at 848-4210 for more information about these opportunities.
