Bedford's Virtual Volunteer Fair

Bedford Virtual Volunteer Fair – You Are Needed!  

Volunteering is one of the most meaningful expressions of giving and agencies serving Bedford residents need your help. Thanks to the support of AARP, Southern NH Planning Commission has partnered with the Caregivers Volunteer Driver Program, St. Joseph Community Services (SJCS) Meals on Wheels Program, and Bedford’s innovative Public Library to put on an informative and exciting Virtual Volunteer Fair.  

Helping connect seniors to their community is one of the most meaningful things you can do for older adults who might otherwise become socially and physically isolated. Caregivers Volunteer Driver Program (VDP) provides training for volunteers to safely provide rides to seniors so they can get to critical medical appointments.  SJCS Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals, wellness checks, and friendly visits throughout Hillsborough County. Meals on Wheels drivers not only feed some of the most vulnerable people in the county, but they also combat social isolation through their wellness checks and friendly visits.

Looking for a rewarding way to give back to your community? Please join our Virtual Volunteer Fair through Zoom and learn about these programs. The virtual fair takes place on December 17th, 3:00 to 4:30 pm: Find out from agency representatives about training, volunteer needs, safety precautions and other details. Plus, everyday heroes who are volunteering will share their stories on how these programs mean so much to seniors in Bedford.  

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Give-aways: The first three to sign up to any program, a free SNHPC coffee mug.
