The Franciscan Common Venture program, sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Dubuque, is seeking volunteers for its service sites beginning in April. The 2018 Common Venture sites include Dubuque, Waterloo, and Sioux City, in Iowa; Winnebago, NE; South Bend, IN; Busby, MT; and Morton and Okolona, MS. Volunteer opportunities range from quilting to tutoring children. New this year are one-day service opportunities in Dubuque, Waterloo, and Sioux City.
Franciscan Common Venture is a volunteer program that provides the opportunity for men and women 20 years and older to contribute their time, talents, and commitment in service among people who are poor. Volunteers are asked to contribute a stipend to help cover food and housing costs and are also responsible for their own costs traveling to and from the volunteer sites.
