Volunteering with the Northland Shepherd’s Center is an energizing way to do something worthwhile for someone else.
For older adults at that unique place in life– with careers fulfilled and families raised- they are called to give back in retirement. Whether it’s an hour every couple of months or a regular daily activity, our volunteers make new and lasting friendships, routinely enjoy new experiences, and stay physically and mentally healthy by giving back.
Every weekday, Northland Shepherd’s Center volunteers donate time and talents to fulfill a variety of needs such as transportation drivers, handy helpers, “Phone Pals”, Meals on Wheels, Plate of Hope Food Pantry, fundraiser support, administrative support, and more.
Through their ordinary acts of kindness, they are making an extraordinary difference in the lives of older adults and the community.
Volunteer opportunities are flexible to each person’s schedule. An array of choices means there is something for every interest.
