We are in need of volunteers on June 16

We are looking for volunteers from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16.

We need people to arrange roses in vases, deliver roses throughout Austin and help when people pick-up their roses at our building. It will be in a drive-through format, watch for the signs.

This is also the same time as the Mower County Senior Center meal delivery, so the parking lot will be busy with buses.  As of Wednesday, we have 26 shifts available. Email info@lifemowercounty.org if you have any questions or if you would like to register.

Virtual program opportunities

We may be practicing social distancing for the time being, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to connect with each other and hang out!

We are excited to offer virtual programs for LIFE participants. Learn more by visiting www.lifemowercounty.org/coronavirus. Video programs are conducted over Zoom, a free app that can be downloaded on your phone, tablet or computer.

We are still adapting and changing programs based on participant and family needs, and we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Send your feedback to info@lifemowercounty.org and let us know how we can better support you while we are all staying safe at home.

Activity Update

We wanted to share a quick note about what we are doing at LIFE Mower County in light of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Like you, we are following the news very closely and taking every precaution as recommended by the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

We have been taking every precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Following the recommendations from the State of Minnesota around social distancing, and with an abundance of caution and concern for our entire community, we will be canceling all in-person activities through Tuesday, June 30.

These changes are precautionary and are not due to any known exposure to COVID-19 in our building. The health, safety, and well-being of our community remain our No. 1 priority.  We will reevaluate the situation on Wednesday, July 1, and advise everyone with any future changes.
