Looking to Volunteer?


We offer a wide variety of opportunities for people to volunteer AND we rely on volunteers for all aspects of Little Brothers. We depend on them to drive our friends to medical appointments, visit, cook and bake for parties, help with our firewood program, deliver monthly food bags, help with holiday celebrations, etc. Volunteers also help with office tasks, mailings, and photography. Whether you have just a few hours a year to several hours a week, Little Brothers may be a place for you.

Volunteer Opportunities


Some of our key volunteer needs include...

Friendly Visiting Program

The Friendly Visiting Program is really the heart of Little Brothers. Through this program, volunteers are matched up to visit an elderly person on a regular basis with the intent that they form a meaningful friendship. This can include running errands, taking walks, sharing coffee, reminiscing--the list is endless. The resulting friendship may continue through a lifetime.

A wonderful opportunity awaits volunteers who wish to make a difference in someone's life.

Social Activities and Holiday Celebrations Programs

Volunteers are needed for all these activities to help with transportation, food prep, set up, serving, clean up, and most importantly-companionship.

Direct Services

Volunteers are always needed to provide transportation for our elderly friends to medical appointments, take people shopping, deliver monthly food bags, and cut, split, stack or deliver firewood.

Office Tasks

We need help with various office tasks, including addressing and stuffing envelopes, writing acknowledgments to donors, bookkeeping and filing, computer entry, and answering the phone.

Public Relations

We need volunteers with skills in still photography or video, update our Power Point presentations, make posters and brochures, and help with speaking engagements.

We welcome volunteers in whatever areas you decide. May all of us work in the spirit of our motto Flowers Before Bread, which describes our philosophy that the pleasures of life are as important to the human spirit as bread is to the body.
