Volunteer Opportunities

Friends of Millbrook Library

Do you know someone in the Village of Millbrook or the Towns of Washington or Union Vale who would love to borrow books, magazines, or audiobooks, but can’t get to the library due to a medical or physical limitation? Thanks to the Friends of the Millbrook Library, help is now available! Call the library and ask for information about the Friends’ Homebound Library Service. A “new friend” will be in touch soon and start bring the treasures of our library to their door for free!

The Friends of the Millbrook Library meet the 1st Tuesday of each month at 4 pm. Contact friends@millbrooklibrary.org or call 677-3611 x3 for more information.

Friends of Seniors

In 2018, Friends of Seniors volunteers drove 87,484 miles to 3,486 medical appointments, the grocery store, to clients’ home for visiting and respite care. In addition, they called clients on the phone, giving 8400 hours of their time to 335 clients, many more than one time. Our services are FREE!

Volunteer work is flexible and up to the volunteer. Because of the nature of today’s busy world, people who want to volunteer cannot always work within volunteer organizations’ time frames. Friends of Seniors believes THE VOLUNTEER IS THE BOSS! Call  (845)-485-1277 for more information.

Meals on Wheels Millbrook

Volunteers can work in the kitchen where cooks prepare the meal, kitchen helpers make sandwiches and package the lunch bags and meal trays, and drivers deliver the meals to our clients in the Millbrook area.

We prepare meals Monday, Wednesday and Friday (except holidays and during bad weather) from approximately 8:30 – 10 AM, drivers start their rounds at 10:00.  If you could volunteer a day a week or a day per month, or even as an occasional fill-in, let us know by calling (845)- 677-3485.
