Looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity but have limited time to spare? Newton at Home may be just what you've been looking for. Newton at Home is a membership organization created to provide Newton seniors with support and social connections that help them remain in their homes as they age. Many of the more than 200 members no longer drive and depend on volunteers for rides (to medical appointments, Logan airport, social activities, supermarkets and many other local destinations). There are also opportunities for handyman jobs, tech support, grocery shopping and more.
You sign up for the volunteer opportunity that is convenient for you. Busy for the week? No problem. Just don't respond to the request. Able to give a few hours while the kids are in school? Sign up for the job of your choice. You will be rewarded by meting some of the most remarkable Newton residents while you perform a vital community service. For more information and no obligation whatsoever, call Newton at Home at 617-795-2560.
