Volunteer Opportunities

If you are looking for a rewarding way to share your gifts and talents with your community, have we got a deal for you!

We are always looking for volunteers to spend time with our 60+ seniors, whether it’s talking to them or helping them with something they can’t do by themselves anymore.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Grand Friends (click link for more information)
  • Meals on Wheels drivers in Aitkin
  • Transportation for groceries, shopping, etc.
  • Chore Services in the home
  • Yard clean-up and raking
  • Volunteer respite and friendly visiting
  • Board members
  • Something else? Give us a call and let us know what you’d love to do!

What are the benefits of volunteering?

It’s been said that volunteering leads to better health, strengthens social ties, prevents isolation and leads to greater self worth and trust. (That’s for the volunteer, just think of what it can do for the seniors!)

What does it take to be a volunteer? The desire to make a big difference and build a stronger community.

Please complete, sign, and return to CARE these two forms — 1) Volunteer Application Form and 2) Background Check Form. The Background Check form needs to be notarized. A photo copy of your driver's license and auto insurance card is also required. If convenient, CARE is able to notarize and make copies.
