The Cortland County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is looking for volunteers who are at least 55-years-old to fill several current openings in the area.
-CAPCO needs volunteers to drive their own vehicle to transport county residents to non-emergency medical appointments in Cortland, Tompkins, Broome, or Onondaga Counties.
Drivers are not paid, but receive mileage reimbursement at the current federal rate and can specify which county they’d like to drive in, as well as which days they’re available.
In order to qualify, you must possess a valid NYS driver license and a dependable vehicle with current insurance, registration, and inspection. You also must pass a background check.
-Person to Person: Citizen Advocacy Assoc., Inc. seeks volunteers who are patient and empathetic to mentor and to advocate for a person with a developmental disability. A fingerprint background check is required.
-Cortland County’s Home-Delivered Meals Program says it could use additional help to distribute meals occasionally to clients who reside at apartment buildings at 42 Church Street, 51 Port Watson Street, or The Friendship House. No driving or heaving lifting is required.
-CAPCO welcomes a volunteer who performs magic tricks as entertainment for 45 minutes during a family event being planned for late afternoon on a Wednesday in January.
-The County’s Nutrition Program through the Area Agency on Aging needs a kitchen assistant in the County Office Building on Thursday mornings or Friday mornings starting at 8:00 for three or four hours. No cooking, heavy lifting, or cleaning is involved.
