Caritas of Port Chester

Personal shoppers wanted! Caritas of Port Chester provides food, clothing, counseling, and education for local residents in need. Twice a week Caritas rolls out the racks and stocks the shelves with a healthy variety of groceries, produce, meats, eggs and fish. Our volunteers assist in setting up the pantry before escorting our clients down the aisles. Clients get to choose from a selection of grains, vegetables, dairy, proteins, fruits, soups, and miscellaneous items. It's fun. It's personal. And it is immensely rewarding for all. Why not give it a try?

Calling all pet owners! This senior care center needs gentle and well-behaved animals of any kind (and their owners) to visit with residents. Pets and their owners are scheduled for an hour to an hour-and-a-half visit on any day of the week. The residents enjoy visiting and playing with the pet, often reminiscing about having a dog or cat of their own.
