• Resident Escort: transfer residents in wheelchairs to activity 

• General Store: assisting residents with their shopping needs

• Pastoral Care: usher, reader, communion assistant, altar guild 

• Auxiliary: assist with interactive resident activities and celebrations, including holidays, special milestones and fundraising opportunities throughout the year

• Pet Therapy: visiting residents with your approved dog 

Benefits You Receive  

Volunteering is not just about giving, but also receiving. Volunteering can be a way for people with common interests to meet, get to know each other, stay informed and connect on a social level. It’s easier to contribute to the greater good when you feel a sense of belonging!
