Volunteer Recuitment for CIDER

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Your friends at CIDER are always looking to add names to our volunteer roster.  If you have a few hours a week or more we can find a volunteer opportunity for you.  We also always like to have a list of people for our substitute list to replace volunteers while on vacation.

Volunteer drivers are required to complete an application available in the CIDER Office.  Our volunteers take people to scheduled medical and therapy appointments and some personal trips as well.

We especially are looking for people to help out in the towns of Alburgh and Isle La Motte for driver opportunities and for helping out with delivering Meals on Wheels.  Give us a call and we can answer any questions you may have.  CIDER Office 372-6425.
