A variety of flexible opportunities for volunteering is available. They range from providing services directly to the client, to assisting with special projects throughout the year.
It is because of a network of volunteers that The CareGivers is able to offer in-need individuals the following programs: Rides for Healthy Living, Food for the Homebound, Friendly Visits, the Caring Cupboard and Reassurance Phone Calls. By simply helping someone with grocery shopping, taking them to their doctor's appointment or a friendly visit, a volunteer is able to give an individual the benefit of remaining in their own home while receiving the satisfaction of helping another. This opportunity does not require volunteers to obligate themselves to a weekly time commitment. Our Program Coordinator is more than willing to accommodate busy schedules; a volunteer simply communicates their availability to the Coordinator.
Throughout the year, The CareGivers strives to organize special projects designed to benefit the frail, elderly and disabled residing in the Greater Manchester and Nashua communities. These initiatives are often the result of coordinated effort among various college, church and business entities. Past special projects have included distributing fans and bottled water to offset the heat of summer, college students cleaning elderly apartments and having a friendly visit, holiday gift giving, creating colorful bulletin boards and delivering freezer ready meals.
In addition to these opportunities, there are several others such as assisting at one of fundraising events, such as Chocolate Lovers Fantasy, or helping your church or civic organization arrange a service project.
