Volunteer Opportunities

Your time is a gift. Give it to someone who will cherish every minute.

Volunteers of all ages are needed to assist elders 60 years and older as well as younger disabled individuals.

You can provide individuals with transportation to an appointment. Maybe visiting a lonely elder once a week is something that interests you. Completing grocery shopping or joining an elder on a shopping trip may be how you make the biggest difference. Some elders simply need someone like you to offer a phone call for reassurance and a sense of connection.

If you have a general knowledge of household budgeting and money management, we have elders who need you to visit once a month and assist with paying bills and properly maintaining their check register. Volunteers do not sign checks or manage any other financial assets.

The benefits of volunteering include:

  • Knowing you help an individual be able to live independently at home
  • Sharing skills and talents
  • Making a valuable contribution to your community
  • Mileage reimbursement for those times use of your vehicle supports an individual attending a medical appointment
  • Training and support is provided.
  • Your schedule matters and we aim to connect you with someone in or near your community

For more information about gifting your time, call the Volunteer Coordinators at MHCC at 1-800-734-7312 or 978-537-7411 or email us at volunteers@mhcc-1.org.
