Volunteers are the backbone of the Bright Side Family, and they make a huge difference not only to our residents, but also to our staff. There are countless ways to volunteer with us!

If you're interested in any of the opportunities below, or if you have an idea we haven't thought of, let us know! Contact us at info@brigthsidemanor.org to discuss how we can collaborate.

Friendly Visits

Simply put, these volunteers visit with our residents. Walk with a resident around the premises. Talk about politics, current events, the theater, or books. Play trivia, Scrabble, cards, or a board game. Host bingo. Bring your favorite aromatherapy oils to share. Paint our female residents' nails. If you can think of it, chances are our residents will enjoy it.

Holiday Volunteers

Bright Side doesn't close on holidays. While some of our residents spend holidays with their families, many residents remain at Bright Side. If you're looking for a special way to spend Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year's Day, or any other holiday, remember that Bright Side has meaningful volunteer opportunities for you.
