The phrase “neighbors helping neighbors” is the essence of how a Village works. Volunteers are the essential ingredient that allows Villages to provide cost-effective assistance to seniors in their homes. Members often become volunteers helping other members, or may volunteer their talents through teaching a class, assisting in our office or at our events.
Some examples of how volunteers can work with our members:
• Provide transportation to the grocery store or to medical appointments
• Help with computers
• Organizing and assisting with light housekeeping
• Simple home maintenance (change light bulbs, raking leaves, shoveling)
• Share a favorite hobby
• Enjoy neighborhood walks together
STL Village welcomes volunteers of all ages to get involved in building our community. We look forward to partnering with local organizations (school groups, churches, etc.) to connect volunteers with opportunities to assist our members.
