During the holidays, groups look to perform at nursing homes, elderly housing, etc.
However, there is always the need for volunteers at both of our locations: The Pines Machias Campus and The Pines - Olean Campus. Our residents enjoy year-round volunteers; volunteers who make them feel special.
Volunteers need not have a "special talent". Volunteers do such things as read to the residents, help with Bingo, take residents on "walks", travel with the Activities Department on outings, polish a resident's fingernails, bake a special "treat" to be shared with several residents, play a musical instrument, sing to the residents, etc.
Consider spending a few hours making our residents' time more pleasant. To volunteer contact Dottie Koch at the Olean Campus, 716-373-1910, ext.4421 and Kim Hewlett at the Machias Campus, 716-353-8516, ext. 4612
