Home Delivered Meals Program needs drivers

Spend a gratifying lunch time one day a week. The Home Delivered Meals sent from the Littleton Sr. Center is in need of drivers. Come to the Center about 10:15 am, have coffee and a treat and take a route of approximately 10-12 meals to one of 7 areas covered. The recipients are pleased to see you, you get a smile and thank you and all that happens in little more than an hour. I am looking for volunteers who will give cheers and nourishment to seniors and get appreciation in return. Remember we will all be there someday.....share your care.

Youth Conference on Volunteerism

The StarMight Foundation is inviting all New Hampshire middle and high schools to send student representatives from grades 5-12 to the very first Youth Conference on Volunteerism! We are looking for student participants who are simply curious about, very interested in, involved with and/or passionate about volunteering and community service. Applications will be received on a first-come, first-serve basis but there is no limit on how many representatives each school can nominate and send. There is also an opportunity for schools, if interested, to send one adult advisor to accompany their participants, but we must limit this number to one adult per school due to the size and nature of the event. For the past two years, 16 middle and high school students, representing 14 different NH schools, have collaborated monthly to plan and implement the very first conference about volunteerism in NH designed BY youth FOR youth. To work as a progressive, collaborative event, the NHBYV has partnered with organizations such as City Year, Youth Venture and NH Teen Institute to make it a certain success. The goal of this conference is to bring together middle and high school students from across the state for a day of learning, networking and celebrating the power of youth. The one-day event will feature workshops, keynote and guest speakers, volunteer entertainment, a continental breakfast and bag lunch, as well as a volunteer fair enabling participants to connect with community organizations. At the conclusion of the event, an awards program will feature outstanding participants of the conference who will be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their community.

GroundBreakers are volunteers who spend time together with adults or students with developmental disabilities for friendship, fun or activities. The program is an opportunity for many individuals who would otherwise spend time alone to be out with volunteers who enjoy the same hobbies and activities.

We're not asking volunteers take time out of their schedule to be with someone, we're asking volunteers to have fun doing what they usually do and to share that time and activity with someone else.

Becoming a GroundBreaker is an opportunity to foster friendships, to become involved the community, and to explore your gifts, talents, and hobbies with another individual. It's about seeing potential in yourself and others, and exploring that potential while enjoying life.

Interested? Please call Valarie Gauthier at 603-444-6894, e-mail, or drop by the Common Ground office, 29 Maple Street, Littleton, NH 03561.
