When a person first begins to volunteer for Chore he or she is assigned a weekly shift with a particular crew. Currently we have 14 crews of 2 to 4 volunteers who ride in 3 specially equipped vans as they travel throughout Bergen County performing the minor home repairs that keep our neighbors safe. The crews not only can complete a myriad of jobs for each of the 4 to 5 clients they see each day, but they often represent a welcome visit for many of the clients who are homebound. Our clients will write letters of thanks, telling us how much they appreciated not only the repairs the crews completed for them, but how friendly and caring the crews were.
Joe Cutolo, Ed Lipiner and Ed Morandi are the Tuesday, Chore Van #2 crew.
Mrs. R., a Chore client, writes: “Thank you for the stairway railing Chore volunteers installed several months ago. The other day, I slipped on the stairs and if it wasn’t for the railing, I surely would have been badly injured. Thank you for keeping me safe.”
To celebrate this incredibly impactful program that enables thousands of seniors and disabled individuals to live safely and independently in their homes, please join us at the 40th Anniversary of Chore BeefsteakDinner!
