Volunteer With Northwest Neighbors Network
Have a Heart
Volunteers of all ages are the heart and soul of Northwest Neighbors Network (NNN), providing skills and energy needed to help community members age in place for as long as possible.
The opportunities for both adults and children (with adult supervision) to volunteer are endless. Please consider your interests and knowledge and let us know what you would like to do. You will have ideas for activities and useful assistance that may interest, even excite, members of our village; things we hadn't even considered. Along with your new ideas, we have need for people who are interested in the activities that are in demand in all villages.
Interested in providing transportation • running errands • grocery shopping • becoming a walking partner • doing meal prep • repairing things around the house • weeding • doing light house-keeping • helping with computers, phones, electronics • directing fitness activities • organizing events? These opportunities await you!
Protect Your Time
Many of us have been looking for a chance to volunteer, but have not wanted to get tied down to schedules and or be over committed. Volunteering with NNN is ideal for us! We can be a resource with options. On days when driving someone to a doctors appointment is doable, we can say "yes" to the request for our services. When we want to take a vacation or have a busy schedule or just feel like lazing around, we can be "unavailable."
No Time Like the Present
Running a village takes extra commitment from many people. Please consider joining us to make Northwest Neighbors Network a viable, sustainable entity.
