Volunteer & Connect with an Older Neighbor through
DOROT’s 9/11 Day of Service Package Delivery
“If I can help make someone’s day just a little bit better, I feel blessed. I may be the only person they talk to all day. It’s important for me to connect with older people and help them feel seen.”
– Cosmin (Package Delivery Volunteer)
DOROT’s 9/11 Day of Service Package Delivery brings hundreds of older adults and volunteers together to share warmth and companionship.
This September, volunteer to deliver a package of treats and share a friendly phone call or visit with an older adult in the community.
Join volunteers from across the country in commemorating 9/11 through communal service. By giving a little of your time, you can make a big impact!
“It was a pleasure speaking with the volunteer. It is a comfort having DOROT in our lives. The bag of goodies is a very welcome treat and very much appreciated. DOROT is a blessing for all the people you serve!”
– Ruth (DOROT senior)
