Package Delivery

DOROT's Package Delivery brings hundreds of older adults and volunteers together to share warmth and companionship. Join us multiple times a year in Manhattan or Westchester to deliver a thoughtful, seasonal care package and connect with an older neighbor!

“It was wonderful! The visit from these two remarkable young women was like a breath of fresh air. Cannot thank them and DOROT enough!” - Sheila (DOROT senior)

Here's how it works:

  1. Register!
  2. Pick up a package and get matched with an older adult
  3. Deliver the package to the home of an older adult
  4. Connect for a visit or friendly phone call!

Here is what volunteers have said about their package delivery experiences:

“At 98 years young, Sophie is full of life and heart. She was thrilled for our visit, and we completely lost track of time as she regaled us with stories from her childhood, growing up in the Bronx in the 1920s. Loved spending time with her.” – Alexandra W.

“Delivering the Passover packages was what I call a ‘WOW’. I cannot remember a better organized volunteer experience. From the greeting on the sidewalk outside of DOROT, to the orientation, registration, assigning of visitation, passing out of packages. That you managed to deliver over 550 meals in a short time was masterful.” – Gabe G.
