Hometown Hero 2017
The Northeast Tarrant County Chamber recognized Mid-Cities Care Corps volunteer, Ron Sullivan, as Our Hometown Hero 2017 ! Ron has been a dedicated MCCC driver for 18 years, providing transportation for seniors to medical appointments and social outreach events. There have been many times when Ron has driven up to four or five senior neighbors at one time. Volunteers provide their vehicle, gas and time. Ron is an invaluable volunteer for Mid-Cities Care Corps!

Isolation is a valid concern amongst the senior citizen market. There are many ways to help our senior neighbors combat the feeling of isolation, especially during the holiday season when life gets too busy. Social outreach is a rewarding means of giving back, whether it is of your time, resources or money. The Phone Friends program that Mid-Cities Care Corps has in place is one of several social outreach programs offered and implemented by the many volunteers that make up the organization. The program connects seniors with a friend who is committed to call each week. Smiles are created and friendships are built. We will continue this series on isolation with other programs offered by Mid-Cities Care Corps. In the meantime, please connect with us if you are interested in volunteering, donating or even becoming a client. If you are not already on our mailing list, go to our contact page and sign up. We would love to hear from you.
