Volunteer Services

"The greatest gift is a portion of thyself" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our Volunteer Program is one of the largest and most robust in the Shenandoah Valley with more than 500 volunteers contributing more than 44,000 hours of service annually toward helping VMRC residents age well and live fully. If we put a price tag on the service hours, it would be more than one million dollars - now that's a real value!

Whatever you like to do, our Volunteer Services Manager will match you up with the perfect role! Possibilities are endless! Choose from a variety of opportunities from companionship to appointment escort, café helper to volunteering with community youth. 

Read a little more about some of our volunteer opportunities:

• Woodland Park House Friend:  Enrich the lives of residents, families and staff at one Woodland Park Home through relationship building. House Friends are available to offer an extra pair of hands, a listening ear and a caring heart

• Express Cart Drivers:  Operate the indoor transportation cart offering point-to-point rides for residents.

• Main Street Store: Pick up groceries from Red Front Supermarket, assist with shopping at Wal-Mart and Costco, help with bagging and cashiering.

• GrandBigs: Take part in scheduled outings with area youth from the local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter.
