Volunteer Program

CHPV relies on volunteers, both members and non-members, to complete our mission. The concept is simple: neighbors helping neighbors. The Village connects people with energy, creativity, knowledge, and determination with those who need them. 

How to Help

  • Share ideas for programs, social activities, services.
  • Help plan an event, establish an interest group, and welcome new members.
  • Offer your expertise to one of our committees, e.g. technology, newsletter writer, or publicity.


  • Help staff (other volunteers) with computer data entry and filing.
  • Join our stuffing parties to prepare mailings.
  • Make calls to contact members or remind them of upcoming events

  • Neighbor-to-Neighbor:

  • Accompany a member to a doctor’s appointment, a social event, or errand.
  • Visit a member to chat, take a walk, share a book.
  • Run small errands for a member who finds it difficult to be out and about.

  • Current volunteer opportunities
