Students participating in the Lunch Buddies program are matched according to interests and then meet to share lunch and activities together. The program's objective is to promote the development of personal relationships between members of different generations. Volunteers meet their student partner at the school where they share a hot lunch.

Volunteer Drivers for Seniors
Faith in Action is an interfaith program that matches volunteer drivers with Troup County senior citizens who, for financial, medical, or personal reasons, have no other means of transportation to medical appointments. Volunteers will use their own vehicles and choose their own schedules for service. Turnaround time averages approximately two hours.
This volunteer-based program is an alternative to costly and inconvenient public or group transportation for seniors. Faith in Action provides an opportunity for caring volunteers to share themselves through not only their time and service but also through their companionship.
