Community Involvement

Anyone Can Make a Difference

At Blakey Hall, there are countless opportunities for individuals and groups to help around our facilities. If you want to contribute through your special talent or skill, let us know. We will find an opportunity for you!

Why Volunteer?

Studies show that volunteering helps us enjoy longer lives. Likewise, taking part in worthwhile causes helps add meaning to our lives and improve our quality of living.

Group Outings
Aside from individuals, groups are encouraged to join our volunteer programs. Bands and choirs are welcome to perform their pieces for our residents. Furthermore, service groups can help us organize our building events. Interested groups may also suggest their own events to our activities director.

After-School and Summer Camps, Holidays, and Teacher Workdays
Your child will have an exciting, memorable experience at our after-school and summer camp. We do pick-ups at most schools in the area. We also help with homework!

Young children gain so much experience from the older generation. In addition, the older generation is inspired by the energy and enthusiasm from the children. Intergenerational involvement is truly wonderful and is the reason we opened Blakey Hall After School & Summer Camp next to our senior accommodations.

Childhood is a unique and precious span in the human life cycle that should be valued and respected. Through our child-centric programs, we provide young individuals with opportunities to build relationships with others. In addition to that, we have a dietary department that serves freshly prepared, nutritious meals to the children under our care.

Various Volunteer Opportunities

One of our most popular volunteer programs is our seasonal dinners, which we hold during the holidays, New Year’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day. Individuals can also participate in our Adopt-A-Grandparent program. All of these opportunities are great for students who are looking to participate in our respective volunteer initiatives.
