H&M volunteers helping with Meal Delivery

The Carter Burden Network promotes the well-being of seniors 60 and older through a continuum of services, advocacy, arts and culture, health and wellness and volunteer programs, all oriented to individual, family and community needs. We are dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to live safely and with dignity. CBN is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to remain in their homes living independently, safely, and with dignity. Volunteers are an integral component of the Carter Burden Network's 50+ years of success.

We're looking for compassionate, patient, and committed individuals to help seniors grocery shop!
Volunteers may help make grocery lists, shop at the supermarket and deliver groceries to seniors who are homebound and living in the Upper East Side and East Harlem neighborhoods. This is a great way to get to know a senior and it also serves the crucial function of ensuring that seniors have food in their homes. This fun and fulfilling program asks that volunteers assist seniors at least once or twice a month.

All Volunteers are to adhere to CDC/ Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines. Must wear mask and gloves during service at all times and will be provided upon request.

If you are interested, please email us at : volunteer@carterburdennetwork.org

Description

The Carter Burden Network was established in 1971, by New York City Council Member Carter Burden. He represented the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and founded the Center to assist the neighborhood's large number of older residents who were poor, in declining health and isolated.

The Carter Burden Network has grown into an agency with 12 programs in 7 locations and more than 100 employees. Now we serve approximately 5,000 seniors every year across the borough of Manhattan. It is a network of centers, programs and services that work together with government, corporate, individual and community partners to lead the way in aging services in New York City.

CBN offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to meet your interests. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBN can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience. Opportunities can range from a one-time service day to a long-term volunteer commitment. We welcome individual, community and corporate groups to volunteer with us!
