Deliver a package and joy! Volunteer for DOROT’s Passover Package Delivery
DOROT’s Passover Package Delivery brings hundreds of older adults and volunteers together to share warmth and companionship. Join us this April in Manhattan or Westchester to deliver a thoughtful, seasonal care package and connect by phone with an older neighbor!
“It was a pleasure speaking with the volunteer. It is a comfort having DOROT in our lives. The bag of goodies is a very welcome treat and very much appreciated. DOROT is a blessing for all the people you serve!” – Ruth (DOROT senior)
