Volunteer with CRIS
“No one is more cherished in this world than someone
who lightens the burden of another.”
CRIS is very grateful for the exceptional volunteers that have served with us over the years. From wellness checks to delivering meals, our volunteers have helped keep older adults safe, healthy, and independent for just as long as we have – that’s more than 40 years!
To comfortably support our programs, we need 25-30 volunteers each week. Learn more about the different volunteer opportunities below and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands – one for
helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
Times vary depending on your schedule.
The Money Management Program utilizes well-trained volunteers to work with seniors on budgeting, sorting mail, balancing checkbooks and actual bill paying. This program assists seniors who need assistance due to physical or mental disabilities, unpaid bills, inability to read or write, loss of home due to foreclosure or threats of utility shut-off. The volunteer can go to the home of the senior each month and assist with their financial needs.
Monday – Friday | 9AM – 4PM
As you might imagine, there is a lot of organizing and behind-the-scenes work that needs to be done at CRIS on a daily basis. We are always looking for people who can assist in our Danville office. Help may include typing, answering phones, filing, and other clerical duties. We also need help with the special events and programs that we regularly offer seniors.
