Village Driver Volunteer & Member
A Village driving volunteer gives a Village member a ride.

Help our seniors "Stay Home & Stay Safe," by delivering meals and/or groceries, picking up prescriptions, helping with yardwork, walking the dog, and checking in. Aside from getting to help Gramma, the beauty of this volunteer gig is the flexibility - you get to select which opportunities work for you.

Volunteers are thoroughly vetted so you can help our members on-on-one, and in usual-times in the member’s home. In light of physical distancing mandates, and reducing the risks to both our members and volunteers, volunteers must be healthy to serve, and are limited to the following:

  • Grocery shop, pick up groceries ordered online, or pick up prescriptions.
  • Deliver prepared meals.
  • Order groceries online for a member.
  • Yardwork or other outside projects.
  • Laundry (must be taken to volunteer’s home).
  • Household chores with minimal indoor time (ex: relighting a pilot light or changing a smoke detector battery).
  • Social phone calls.
  • Visiting outside in the fresh air (at least 6 feet apart).

Additionally, our intake process has been modified during this time of physical distancing. All in-person volunteer trainings are postponed until further notice.
