HELP OUR SENIORS STAY INDEPENDENT - ALL BOROUGHS
70 people are interested
Remaining in their own homes is critical for our seniors and you can help! Compassionate, detail-oriented volunteers, using their every-day life skills, are needed to visit seniors and help with the timely payment of monthly bills. All Boroughs - Manhattan (especially 10024, 10036, 10128, 10463 zip codes), Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. Clients make all their own financial decisions but need hands-on help with bill paying tasks such as reviewing mail, organizing bills, writing out checks for the client to sign, reconciling check register to bank statements. Volunteers are screened, undergo background check and receive detailed procedural instruction and coaching. The commitment is for one year, one or two visits a month for approximately 2-6 hours per month. Please call 212-602-6981 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bill Payer program is operated by NYC Department for the Aging.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
