There are so many ways for you to get involved and help at the Colonial Club. If you have the time to volunteer, think about helping in these areas:
Nutrition Help- Help to serve the congregate meal and wash dishes. Openings on Thursdays and Fridays.
One-on-One Assistance- Help an area senior with grocery shopping, home repairs, snow removal, etc.
Home Delivered Meal Drivers- Deliver lunch time meals to home-bound seniors in Northeast Dane County. This rewarding volunteer opportunity takes about an hour of your time. This may be the only balanced, nutritious meal someone may get for the day and the only time the home-bound senior has socialization. There is an opening for a driver on Mondays. This can be done one time per month, one time per week, or on a substitute basis.
Gift and Coffee Shop Volunteers-The Three Wishes gift shop volunteer provides service to customers in the shop, including using a cash register.
