We always welcome new volunteers to our agency and our programs. Some volunteers have been volunteering with us regularly every week since 1989, while others may volunteer at one or two fund raising events per year. We do our best to accommodate your interests, skills and schedule. Volunteers can help with many things at Project Transitions:
Doug’s House Hospice
Caregivers help residents with their daily non-medical needs. Volunteers provide companionship to residents as well as fulfill direct caregiver tasks such as helping residents bathe or assisting with personal care. Volunteers can also cook for the house, maintain the cleanliness of the house, decorate for holidays or do landscaping at Doug’s House.
Top Drawer Thrift Store
General Volunteers sort and price donations, merchandise the store and window displays, provide customer service, run store departments, help plan and market store events and maintain store cleanliness.
Pick-Up Volunteers assemble a crew of friends, co-workers or church groups and bring larger furniture to the store from donors’ houses. Great for volunteers with trucks or SUVs.
Roosevelt Gardens Housing
Supper Club Volunteers gather a group of friends or co-workers and cook regular (typically weekly) meals for the residents of Roosevelt Gardens. A kitchen is available in our community center.
Programming Volunteers help run events and classes for the Roosevelt Gardens community. Volunteers have run: bingo nights, exercise club, movie nights, community gardening, sports nights, book clubs, cooking classes and parenting orientations.
Bulk mail volunteers process mailings, as needed, in a fun, group atmosphere.
General Administrative Volunteers assist with data entry, pre-event planning, and special projects.
Project Transitions Events
Steering Committee members help plan, organize and direct events. They also solicit cash sponsors and auction donors for our major annual events.
Event volunteers make the event possible on the the day of the event. This includes greeters, bussers, decorators, servers, silent auction support, TABC-certified bartenders, set-up and tear down volunteers.
We always welcome groups, whether a group of co-workers or a student organization to come help out on a special project. We are happy to accommodate your group to help with painting, gardening, fence repair, or other larger tasks. Just let us know what you are interested in…
