Volunteers from People Making a Difference visit several times a year to prepare meals and play games.
Hearth's elderly residents love having visitors, whether those volunteers put on a performance, cook a meal, or lead a game of bingo.
Hearth's staff rely on volunteers to help with behind-the-scene tasks like answering phones, filing, and record-keeping. In addition, volunteers assist with gardening and yardwork, as well as cleaning, painting, and decorating projects.
Volunteer positions and projects can often be scheduled to fit your busy life.
