The Village is in great need of additional volunteers to help out with driving, tech tutoring and cooking. If you are already a volunteer and would like to start helping out with any of these tasks (or if you aren't a volunteer and would like to become one), please send us an e-mail.
Volunteer drivers play an integral role in helping our members get to and from crucial medical appointments, or even appointments to get their hair cut. Having neighbors drive them gives our members a sense of security and offers a chance for socialization for both the member and volunteer. It's such an easy way to make a difference!
We need more tech tutors to help our members learn how to use iPads, troubleshoot general computer problems, become more confident with their cell phones, and more. The issues aren't usually too complex, so even if you aren't an expert you can really help solve a lot of problems.
We are seeking committee members to work on our Volunteer and Membership Committees. (The Volunteer Committee analyzes types of requests that we receive, assess which volunteers are active, plan volunteer appreciation events, etc. The Membership Committee members review attendance at events and requests for assistance, reaches out to socially isolated older residents, welcome new members, etc.)
Finally, we would welcome more help with cooking to support our weekly free meal delivery to members. This involves cooking batches of easy-to-reheat nutritious meals for those who have trouble cooking for themselves or those who could use more food security.
