Do you enjoy helping others?

Then consider becoming a volunteer.

It’s a great way to develop new skills while giving back to the community.

If you would like to donate your time, the best opportunities near our apartments in Newark, DE include:

Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research 

At the Tri-State Bird Rescue, the mission is to provide compassionate rehabilitation to native injured and orphaned wild birds. Founder Lynne Frink established the rescue in 1976 after a tanker ran aground in the Delaware River. The accident caused a major oil spill that harmed thousands of animals. Lynne vowed never to let this happen again. Today, Tri-State is internationally recognized for rehabilitating oiled birds. It features outdoor aviaries, research labs, and animal care wards.

Over 150 volunteers donate more than 20,000 hours every year. Opportunities include bird care, public education, and office support. 

Ronald McDonald House of Delaware 

The Ronald McDonald House gives the families of sick or injured children a place to rest and gather strength during difficult times. Many of the visitors are far from home and need a place to stay for several weeks. There is lodging for 50 families with amenities including weekly activities and a fitness center. 

More than 400 volunteers help make the Ronald McDonald House a home away from home. They work three hours a week and perform duties such as cleaning, assisting guests, and leading game night.

Food Bank of Delaware 

The Food Bank of Delaware works to provide nutritious meals to Delawareans in need. It’s a member of Feeding America and provides both low and no-cost food to qualified feeding programs. The food bank began from humble beginnings in 1977. Today, it’s the only facility in the state with the equipment and warehouse to accept donations from all sectors of the food industry. 

Volunteers are always welcome. They work in shifts and perform tasks such as sorting, stocking, and data entry.
