Spring Volunteer Opportunities at CAMP Rehoboth
CAMP Rehoboth’s Volunteer on Vacation (VOV) is kicking off its fourth season and we want to let you know about upcoming volunteer events as well as information about how to stay in touch.
Friday, April 13, 9-11:30 a.m.: Put on those gardening gloves and meet up with other volunteers to lend a hand by sprucing up the gardens for senior citizens. No specific skills required, just a willingness to contribute a few hours to make a difference. The residents are thrilled to have us coming and may even turn out to meet us and lend a hand as they can. This event is being held in conjunction with CAMP Rehoboth’s Women’s FEST, but is open to all.
Details: The complex where we will be gardening is Huling Cove, a low income senior citizen housing development located at 1142 Savannah Road in Lewes. We will be tending four to five small gardens by edging, weeding, mulching, and planting some shrubs and flowers. Coffee, water and other beverages will be provided. We will meet at the site at 9 a.m.
Also, we are seeking donations of shrubs. If you have any connections to places that might be willing to make a donation, or you are in need of transportation to the event, please contact Leslie Sinclair.
Volunteer Appreciation Party: Saturday, April 21, from 3-5 p.m., at the Community Center. CAMP Rehoboth and the Volunteer Development Committee are hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Party. All are invited to attend as we celebrate the many volunteers who have helped CAMP Rehoboth over the last year. Join us!
Saturday, May 26, 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.: A team of VOV volunteers will be helping with Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness. We will provide services for homeowners in need, including painting, landscaping, weather stripping and minor repairs. More information will be sent as the date gets closer, but mark your calendars now!
Saturday, June 9, 10 a.m. until noon: If you would like to learn more about CAMP Rehoboth and volunteering, please consider attending the volunteer orientation session. It is not a requirement for participating in VOV, but it comes highly recommended. Individuals who have participated in the orientation find it to be informative, interesting, and fun. Email CAMP Rehoboth or call 302-227-5620, to sign up.
New and Improved: CAMP Rehoboth’s Volunteer Development Committee is planning for informative email communications targeted specifically to the many volunteers who support CAMP Rehoboth. To be sure you receive these, go to the volunteer section of CAMP Rehoboth’s website. At the bottom is a short form where you can provide your email.
