Hundreds of dedicated volunteers deliver meals to individuals who are homebound, provide general assistance
in Senior Centers and in the Adult Day Care Centers, participate in the Music Makers, work at special events
and help our staff with day to day activities as well as teach, coach and administer the Adult Learning Center program.
All programs rely on the support of invaluable volunteers.
- Homebound Meal Delivery Volunteers - assist by delivering meals to frail, elderly and lonely homebound
individuals for one hour, once a week. Deliveries are made Monday through Friday at approximately 11:00 am. Volunteers
can also deliver on a less frequent basis such as on holidays only. Individuals or families are welcome to participate.
Volunteers must have a valid driver's license and provide their own transportation. Volunteers can also sign
up to be substitute or snow day delivery drivers only. Substitute drivers will be placed on delivery lists
based on the areas where they prefer to drive and will be called only when an opening occurs.
- Commissary Volunteers - assist with meal preparation of about 1500 meals per day at our Nanuet commissary
Monday through Friday between 7:30 am and 10:00 am. Volunteer any day or everyday. Volunteers can gain useful job
skills while helping neighbors in their community. Volunteers must be over the age of 12.
- Senior Center Volunteers - provide center participants with musical entertainment, educational programs,
arts and crafts projects, manicures, or assist with board games, card games and serving lunch. Volunteers are
needed during shifts Monday through Friday between 10:00 am and 1:30 pm.
- Adult Day Care Center Volunteers - assist with many of the same tasks as in the Senior Centers with
programs geared to enhance the cognitive and physical skills of participants who are frailer than those in
the Senior Centers. Volunteers are needed at Adult Day Care centers during shifts Monday through Friday
between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.
