What Volunteers Do

Our volunteers help provide the transportation needed for a positive and engaged lifestyle. Medical appointments, grocery shopping, a play or concert, a bridge game or book club – all are done door-to-door and arm-in-arm.

Volunteers also use their time and talents in members’ homes – a weekly visit, help with gardening, reading and walking together, getting trash to the curb, and other neighborly needs.

There are also many volunteer opportunities by being on the Neighborhood Falmouth team: being on a committee, helping in the office, or helping with our wide variety of events. We have an activity that matches your interests and talents!
