The heart of the North End-South Como Block Nurse Program is its volunteers. These great volunteers support our seniors by providing transportation to appointments, making friendly visits, providing telephone assurance, celebrating birthdays and helping with shopping—whatever it takes to brighten the lives of our neighborhood seniors.
There is no single profile of our NE-SC Block Nurse Program volunteers. They are students in college and elementary school, working folks and retired folks, men and women, those who have unlimited time to volunteer and those that have just a few hours a month to give. The only thing that truly matters is that they care about our neighborhood seniors.
Every one of us has some special gift to share. A friendly visit, a ride to the beauty shop, picking up groceries, a chat on the phone—it really doesn't take much to add a “bit of sunshine” to a senior’s life. If you'd like to volunteer we know several seniors who would be thrilled to meet you!
We have volunteer opportunities for you as well as a PenPal with a 4th grader. [Learn more]
