Want to make a one-on-one difference for a member of the community?
Become a friendly visitor!
Some elderly Bloomfield and Glen Ridge residents have little to no human contact. Others are struggling to stay independent as they age or deal with disabilities. Friendly visitors provide companionship and a listening ear to homebound elderly residents who lack the support of family and friends. Friendly visitors are not obligated to, but are welcome to assist with grocery shopping, errands, minor home care, errands, etc.
The goal of the Friendly Visitor program is to connect each volunteer to a senior who they can develop a meaningful relationship with.
Do you have a vehicle and a valid driver's license? Can you donate 1 hour of your time each week?
Join our Food Delivery Team!
Neighbor to Neighbor Network works with the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair, NJ to deliver food to seniors and disabled individuals. The Human Needs Food Pantry currently provides weekly groceries to over 500 Bloomfield and Glen Ridge residents. They supply their clients with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat/poultry, and canned goods.
Food delivery volunteers pick up bags of food from The Human Needs Food Pantry the same time each week and deliver them to a set route of about 5 residents who are unable, due to age or disability, to go to the pantry themselves. A food delivery route takes about 1 hour per week. A valid driver’s license and personal vehicle are required.
Currently we have food runs Tuesday mornings, Thursday mornings, and Thursday evenings.
This volunteer opportunity is very high impact because for some residents, this is their only source of food. One hour a week makes a tremendous difference.
