Volunteer With Us
We rely on the generosity of members in our community to help deliver the care and supportive experience that our residents deserve.
Socialization is an enormous area of need and presents a rewarding opportunity for volunteers. In the past, we have had volunteers:
play cards, chess, or board games with our residents
prepare a weekly dinner in our kitchen
give rides to residents for appointments and shopping
do arts & crafts or hobbies, such as fly-tying with residents
go for walks
just hang out
In addition to volunteering at the house, help also includes monetary contributions to our program, donating goods according to our wishlist, and cooking or baking food for our residents.
Our residents thank you!
Meal Train® for The Veterans' Place
Monday through Friday we serve our residents nutritious, home-cooked meals prepared by Pete, our wonderful dinner chef. On weekends, when the staff is off, residents either cook for themselves with staples kept on hand, pick up a frozen dinner, or heat up leftovers. That's not terrible once in a while, but wouldn't it be nice if they could sit down to a home-cooked, family-style meal seven days a week? If you enjoy cooking for a crowd and are looking for a personal way to "give back" to veterans, here is how to make that happen.
We have set up a "meal train" online, where you can sign up to prepare and drop off a meal or casserole to be served on a Saturday or Sunday evening. What better way to say "Thank you for your service!"
