Charles House Association

  • 42 people are interested

We are a private nonprofit in Chapel Hill that serves elders at our Community Eldercare Center and two Eldercare Homes. You can see more about us here: www.charleshouse.org

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with picking up donated flowers at Trader Joe's and transporting them to our location on Sunday mornings. This does not have to be every week-- we are flexible with time as well. Could take approximately 1-2 hours.

If desired there could be more involvement with our team and seniors as well.
