Hi, Emily!

Thank you for reaching out to us. Our typical volunteer hours are Monday through Friday from 8:45AM-12Noon and 1:45PM-5PM so I am not sure if we are a good fit for you. Do you need your hours for a class?
I am interested in volunteering with an older population. I see there are no events listed. However, I was wondering if you had any opportunities for me to serve. Please let me know if there is a dish I can wash, a blanket I may fold, or anything else that needs doing. I am available on the weekends all day, for as long as needed. I go to school during the week, so I will need to schedule something. Thank you and I hope to hear from you!!
