I am not sure, but I know I want to get involved!
There are many ways that you can help at Charlotte House
I have often heard people say that because they "think" they are not emotionally strong enough
to help with resident care, they don't sign up as a volunteer.
Not every volunteer has to provide resident care.
We have volunteers that clean, cook, assist with fundraising, handyman work, administrative support, read to a resident, give a manicure or a pedicure, plant flowers, take photographs @ events, collect donations, act as an ambassador, marketing assistance, donate eggs (yes, we have someone that does this weekly), donate household items like cleaning supplies or snacks, host there own fundraiser
and then they donate the funds raised to Charlotte House. (a birthday fundraiser on Facebook is an example)
There is an Amazon Smile Charlotte House wish list
that is updated regularly.
Here you can see exactly what we need for supplies,
order and have it sent directly to Charlotte House.
All from the comfort of your own home.
Just click this link to go directly to the wish list for Charlotte House.
Consider organizing a collection at work asking co-workers chip in to create a monetary donation
or to collect items needed for Charlotte House that are listed on the Amazon Wish List link above.
These are just a few examples of how YOU can help.
We understand time can be limited for some. If that's you...that's ok.
Making a monetary donation is sometimes the best option.
We would ask that along with your donation, you keep us in mind when speaking with friends or family to consider Charlotte House as the charity of choice. A referral is the best compliment you can give.
You can become a monthly/ quarterly/ yearly donor.
This can be set up from the Make a Donation link below.
Choose the drop down titled donation schedule, then choose monthly donation.
This makes donating easier for you. (Set it and forget it)
This also allows us to plan, knowing that the donation can be counted on.
Of course resident care volunteers are truly needed.
Caring for someone that cannot care for themselves is extremely rewarding.
We are honored by the resident that chooses to spend their last moments in our presence, as well as the families that request the same for someone they love.
