Here are some of the many volunteer opportunities:

This is a great way to meet your neighbors!  If you can volunteer 2 or more hours a month, you might want to consider being a Kare Bears Coordinator.  They are the Kare Bears contacts for each unit.  There are several coordinators in each unit depending on its size.  When someone is ill, recuperating or grieving, the coordinator contacts the resident to offer assistance assist from Kare Bears. The Coordinator can also be a contact for residents to request services.
