RSVP Volunteers Needed at VA

The Brookline Senior Center will be partnering with the Norfolk County RSVP program and the West Roxbury VA in order to encourage Brookline residents to work as ” Ambassador ” volunteers at the VA beginning this fall.

Ambassadors are most needed on Tuesdays for up to four-hour shifts.  Duties include: information desk, patient escort, delivery of items to patient rooms and possible other duties as requested.  Transportation costs from Brookline Senior Center and return will be reimbursed up to $40 per month by the RSVP program. Training will be provided as well as a meal voucher for those volunteering for four hours on a single day. All volunteers must fill out an application and receive a medical screening.  Ambulatory volunteers preferred but not required.

We hope to encourage a few Brookline Volunteers to travel together to the facility .  This should be both a good social opportunity and rewarding volunteer opportunity for Brookline residents. Please let Deidre Waxman know if you are interested and we will schedule an informational meeting at the Brookline Senior Center with a Volunteer Coordinator from the West Roxbury VA. dwaxman@brooklinema.gov Deidre at:617-730-2767.
