There are tons of wonderful ways of being part of everyday life of Martha & Mary Ministries, such as:
- Mother-daughter/father-son and other service teams “Saturday Blitz; in 4 hours at the house: visit with residents, clean the house, do another special yard or house project, help prepare lunch, and bake cookies — pretty good for a morning’s work!
- Costco shoppers; faithful friends who include some items for us once a month when they make their Costco run (see below.)
- Cooks–come on regular basis and cook or drop off a meal.
- Musicians–grace the house with music—come on a regular basis to play piano players, sing or play other instruments.
- Landscapers & gardeners–come and help keep our grounds gorgeous all year round.
- Community advocates–spread the word of Martha & Mary Home and Ministries to church, school, social groups as well as physicians, social workers and others in the community who need to partner up with Martha & Mary.
- Office helpers–for filing, data entry and the like to help us run smoothly.
- Compassionate Companions–to sit vigil with our residents and others in nursing homes when they are close to death.
- Other–let us know your particular skills and ideas.
Call 503 510-0401 or email email@example.com to talk with our Volunteer Coordinator about how you can help us in the home, office, community!
