Don Kruta, of Jenkins, became a volunteer with Faith in Action of Cass County in August 2020.

“Faith in Action is a great way to meet new people,” Kruta said in a news release. “It helps many people get to places they could not get to otherwise.”

In honor of its 20th anniversary, Faith in Action for Cass County is highlighting volunteers like Kruta several times a month throughout 2021. Volunteers are celebrated and recognized for their services and awarded $20 gas cards and other prizes.

Since he joined Faith in Action, Kruta has helped 22 people and provided more than 144 hours of transportation service, driving people where they need to go.

When asked about his favorite part of volunteering, Kruta said: “I love to meet and talk with new people. I get to know them, and I know I can make a difference. You think you’re helping them, but I get more out of it as well.”


As a thank you for his volunteer services, Kruta received a gas card.

A locally supported, nonprofit organization, Faith in Action for Cass County coordinates volunteers who provide free nonmedical, neighborly assistance to seniors, the disabled and people in need throughout Cass County. Faith in Action volunteers help with transportation, friendly visiting, respite for caregivers, light homemaking and chores, and basic home repair, and they build accessibility ramps.
