Volunteer to Visit with an Older Neighbor through DOROT’s
Summer 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)
