About

The Carter Burden Center for the Aging (CBCA) 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 Center's 40+ years of success. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBCA can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.

We're looking for compassionate, patient, and committed individuals to help seniors grocery shop or do other errands. Volunteers assist seniors two or more times a month at the supermarket, or they may shop 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 is an on-going volunteer opportunity.

We are currently looking for a volunteer available on Tuesdays afternoons after 12pm to assist a senior who resides in the Upper East Side.

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