At Home on the Sound welcomes volunteers from all walks of life and offers them the opportunity to help their neighbors and their community. Whether you have just an hour to spare or can devote more time, we have an opportunity for you!
If you would like to volunteer please contact our office at 914-899-3150 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the special services volunteers provide include:
Drivers are especially encouraged to volunteer. We need volunteers to take our members on errands, to medical appointments and grocery shopping. Driving assignments are weekdays only. You will never be locked into a schedule. Drive only when it is convenient for you. Once a month, once a week, or on an as-needed basis. (Drivers must be 25 years old or older.) Some drivers may be eligible to have some gas expenses reimbursed by RSVP Westchester. Speak to Elaine Weingarten, Director, for details.
Office assistance and support
Join the team in the office and help answer phones, greet visitors and work with us on special projects. Computer skills are useful.
Visit those members who find it difficult to get out – a friendly visit can be once a week, a month – stop by for a visit and make a new friend.
Friendly phone calls
Friendly phone calls – perfect for those individuals who love to chat! Contact a neighbor by phone just to "check in" and share the news.
Walking is more fun in groups! Join your neighbors, create a group and encourage each other to walk for good health.
Accompany a member to the doctor, worship service, hair dresser, or other appointment or visit out of the home
Gardening /Plant Care
Accompany a member grocery shopping and help them with the packages or pick up the list and do the shopping for them.
Walk the dog, brush the cat, put out food and water.
If you don't drive, but love to walk – you can help our members by running errands in the Village.
