Why Volunteer with Amherst Neighbors
Due to COVID-19 and state guidelines, Amherst Neighbors is now offering "Covid Safe" services. Volunteers can choose what they would like to do: providing grocery and pharmacy pick ups, friendly calls, light yard work or gardening, dog walking, technical assistance with zoom or computers. Volunteers can also be outdoor walking companions.
What if your talents, skills and passions could make a difference in the life of an older adult by helping them stay independent in their home? Our volunteers contribute their time to help members with simple tasks that have become more time-consuming or challenging, while others will contribute to teams that maintain our operations. Anyone 18 or over from any community can apply to volunteer with Amherst Neighbors.
Some of the benefits volunteers experience include:
- Staying active – physically, mentally and socially
- Connecting with others and feeling part of community
- Putting talents, skills and capacities to good use
- Paying it forward – knowing that someday each of us will also need support
The first step to becoming a volunteer is to
an application and return the completed form to P.O. Box 3428, Amherst, MA 01004.
