Learn more about volunteer opportunities with CARE

Many seniors can stay in their homes with just a little help!

Volunteers, of all ages, are the heart of the CARE Program. Follow your heart, and volunteer as much as your schedule allows. Our volunteers choose their days, times, and the areas they are interested in volunteering.

Are you a member of a church or an organization seeking a service project? Please consider a senior service project.

Why do I volunteer? It seems like such as easy question until you have to put it into words. Sometimes there are no words to describe the sense of fulfillment you get when you realize you have just helped someone or just given them the feeling they matter. It’s a great feeling to help put a smile on someone’s face, that maybe hasn’t had anything to smile about for a while. Also I’m not getting any younger; I hope there will be someone there to do the same for me. Volunteering is a great way to energize your spirit!

It’s heartwarming to give back to the people who gave so much. We ought to give back for all that people have done. Volunteering is one way to do it without costing an arm and a leg.

A benefit of volunteering is the satisfaction that you’ve helped someone. It makes me feel good that I’m able to do that.

More people need to get involved. If you can’t be a driver, get involved with other fundraisers or activities. It takes all kinds of people.
