Fair Acres Volunteer Office recruits and coordinates the activities of individual and group volunteers, who serve in almost any capacity in which they would like to volunteer. Some volunteers work on their own, others in pairs or in teams. Some work directly with residents and others in office activities or retail operations such as the gift shop or traveling gift cart.
Volunteers have been absolutely essential to the success of our annual “Spring Fair,” Fair Acres biggest annual fund raising event.
Here are just some examples of what you can do as a volunteer at Fair Acres:
Volunteers are welcome to help almost anytime they are available. Most group activities at Fair Acres are scheduled in the afternoon, although bingo games are held in the morning. Trips and outings usually last from mid-morning until mid-afternoon. Help is also needed for gathering residents for entertainment on weekday evenings but whenever you can help, however you can help, your efforts are most welcome!
Volunteers already involved in service organizations, youth groups, scouting, women’s
clubs, etc, and schools with student clubs or classes are invited to bring groups to Fair
Acres to interact with residents.
