Help seniors in NYC with errands, tasks and more!

Save to Favorites



Help and connect with your older neighbors by running errands, assisting with tasks, providing company during an activity or outing, and more by volunteering for DOROT's Response Team.

Volunteering for the Response Team offers lots of flexibility. You will receive notifications about opportunities and choose those that are convenient for your schedule.

Opportunities typically include going on walks in the neighborhood, outings to museums or shows, help at home with activities like organizing paperwork or closet, visiting to provide companionship, play a game, or teach or practice a skill. There are also opportunities to run errands, like mailing packages, picking up library books, dropping off laundry, and more!

Birthday celebrations are also an important Response Team activity. Response Team volunteers can sign up to call older adults on their birthdays and/or to visit and deliver a small gift, cake, and card (provided by DOROT) to older adults on or near their birthdays. Many do not have anyone else to celebrate with and find these celebrations especially meaningful.

To get started and learn more, join one of DOROT’s upcoming virtual Volunteer Orientations. Sign up here:

Volunteers must be age 18+ and be vaccinated for COVID-19 including one booster. Response Team supports older adults in Manhattan from 50th to 125th Streets on the West Side and from 14th to 96th Streets on the East Side.
