Volunteer Opportunities

Summer is the perfect time to volunteer at Chesterbrook. Students looking for community service hours are welcome.

You could help with breakfast (8-10:00), lunch (11-1:00) or dinner (4-6:00). Although we have staff to serve the meal, volunteers help get drinks, visit with residents, clear tables.

The gift shop is open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1:30-3:00. Residents help out, but we like to have a volunteer there as well.

Residents enjoy having people to visit with them, play board games, or go for a walk.

If you enjoy games, we could use a volunteer to help with the following:

Saturdays, 10:30-11:30 Crossword Puzzles
Sundays, Tuesdays & Fridays 2:00-3:30 Bingo
Mondays, 2:30-3:30 Knit and Stitch
Tuesdays, 6:30 Dominoes
Wednesdays, 6:30 Scrabble
Fridays, at 6:30 Rummikub

The office staff can use help (flexible hours) putting together packets about Chesterbrook or helping with mailings.

If there is an activity or talent (musical or otherwise) that you’d like to share with us, please let us know as we’re always looking for new ideas.

In addition, our annual fundraising event is fast approaching – Harvest Ball 2012 will be Saturday, October 6, 2012. The gift of your time and talent helps make this event a success, so please consider helping with any of the following:

  • Mailings (times vary)
  • Set-up
  • Registration/check-in table
  • Creating auction item catalogue
  • Coat check
  • Bartending
  • Silent auction
  • Escorting & assisting residents
  • Clean-up
