Current Volunteer Needs

Urgent Volunteer Needs

To volunteer, please call 482-6944

MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION DRIVERS

Volunteers are needed to provide door-through-door transportation for our elderly friends who need transportation to and from their medical appointments. Door-through-door means we take those few extra steps to greet them at the door and escort them to car. We ask volunteers to use your own vehicle at your own expense. We will also train volunteers in loading and driving our handicap accessible wheelchair vans.

HOME VISITORS

Volunteers are needed to create meaningful friendships with our elderly friends. We ask volunteers to commit to visit one elderly friend at least twice a month. Your visits may include sharing stories over a cup of coffee, taking walks, or running errands. These small but meaningful acts of kindness enable our friends to enjoy life without loneliness.

HOLIDAY SITE MANAGERS

The Holiday Site Managers are responsible for ensuring the holiday party meets Little Brothers’ standards in providing a homemade meal to elderly friends. You can choose to manage the kitchen, the dining room or both. This position requires organization and the ability to delegate jobs to fellow volunteers.

Training: Holiday site management can be overwhelming but we will arm you with the necessary information. Attend a pre-holiday meeting and meet with the Program Director for individual instruction.

Time commitment: One holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter) per year.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Oversee meal preparation, serving and clean-up in the kitchen
  • Observe all food safety requirements
  • Oversee home-delivered meal distribution
  • Coordinate dining room set-up, serving and clean-up
  • Host! Make welcoming remarks and announcements throughout the meal.
  • Maintain records by signing-in guests and volunteers.
