Great time to get involved at Community Care

If you have a few hours to spare, consider getting involved with Community Care in our efforts to help seniors live at home.

Your contribution of time (large or small) will be greatly appreciated by the seniors that live in this County.  Community Care believes in “the freedom and dignity of choice; the comfort of home; and we have a passion for volunteers.”  The programs we offer support seniors to live at home.

We serve the entire County of Prince Edward. Volunteers pick up furniture for the Thrift Shop, work the reception desk, deliver Meals on Wheels, serve at congregate dining events, help at our active living programs, visit, walk, drive, shop, fundraise, deliver library books, help in the Thrift Shop, fill out forms (including Income Tax), type, telephone, etc.

We have openings for “pick up” volunteers.  This position requires a pick up truck and 3 hours a week.  There’s also an empty chair at the reception desk in our Picton office.

If a fast pace is to your liking that chair could be filled by you for 3 hours a week.  There are many other positions that will fit your time and interest.  Why not call the office and make an appointment to come in and start the conversation?  Our caring staff members all have background and experience in volunteer management and better yet, they all love working with volunteers.

Don’t worry if you travel or have regular commitments, we work around that! Students who need to do their “community service hours” are also encouraged to come into the Community Care office and find out the opportunities that we have available for students.

Maybe you need to get your hours done before the end of June so that you can graduate.  Please encourage your children or grandchildren to contribute to their community in this way.  Bring them in to see us! Stop in at the Community Care office at 74A King Street in Picton and start the conversation.

This is my personal invitation to you.  We are waiting for your visit!
