LOWLINC depends on volunteers to provide support for members and help with administration. Volunteering is a satisfying activity and you’re bound to make new friends.
Serving as a LOWLINC volunteer fits your schedule and interests:
-- Volunteer as much or as little as you want
-- Specify the hours and days of the week (no weekends or evenings)
-- Choose which services you want to provide (e.g., transportation, light home maintenance, computer support, friendly visits or calls, errands)
-- You'll get at least 48 hours' notice of volunteer opportunities.
Drivers transport within LOW, right outside the gate, and no further than 25 miles. LOWLINC's Volunteers Committee provides orientation and ongoing support.
Interested in volunteering? We invite you to review our Volunteer Handbook and complete our Volunteer Application. Please return your completed application to LOWLINC, Box 518, Locust Grove, VA 22508.
Volunteers undergo a background check and if they want to drive, a DMV check. They also attend a volunteer training and orientation session. These sessions cover privacy and confidentiality, communications tips and what you can expect as a volunteer. Attendance at a training session is necessary before you can volunteer.
LOWLINC's seven committees work behind the scenes to serve our members, engage volunteers and carry out activities and programs that support our organization. Both volunteers and members play active roles in each of the following committees: Membership Intake, Member Outreach, Volunteers, Fundraising, Communications, Social Activities and Preferred Service Providers.
Serving on a committee is an easy and fun way to meet others who share a commitment to serving seniors at LOW. For a description of what each committee does, please see Committee Roles and Responsibilities.
