Volunteer and Civic Duty Opportunities
- December, 2013 -


Ozaukee County Aging & Disability Resource Center is in urgent need of volunteers to deliver noon meals to home bound seniors in the Mequon/Thiensville area. 

Due to an increase in the number of individuals who are in need of home delivered meals, volunteers are needed to deliver noontime meals to homebound elderly in Mequon/Thiensville area. You may deliver alone, as a couple, with a friend or with your children. If you are able to share an hour a month of your time, please contact Mary at the Ozaukee County Aging Services Department at 262-284-8120.

Last year, Lieutenant Brian Murphy’s life was changed forever when he came face-to-face with a gunman at a place of worship in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.  Murphy, the first officer on the scene, sustained twelve bullet wounds but survived his injuries.  While he is regarded as a hero both locally and nationally, Lt. Murphy believes that blood donors are the true heroes. “They save lives every day,” he said. “They saved mine.”
Lieutenant Murphy encourages you to donate blood – especially during the holiday season.   “For me”, he said, “theres a very simple correlation between the word ‘hero’ and the act of donating blood. It’s selfless. It’s going above and beyond to help someone in need. That’s the perfect definition of a hero.” Read more about Lieutenant Murphy and watch his video.
Please honor people like Lieutenant Murphy and participate in our upcoming blood drive.
By donating around the holidays, your gift is especially meaningful because donations often decrease due to inclement weather and holiday activities.
