Volunteering — every good deed is important

We are looking for do-gooders and benefactors. Anyone that finds joy in brightening someone’s day is welcome. You could be a musician or a social media enthusiast. You could help by keeping another person company for a coffee or being that friendly someone to talk to for a lonely person. Invaluable help would also be providing a hand for a shopping trip, or company for an afternoon walk. You could surely make someone’s day by performing at an elderly home or assisted living facility.

You can choose any task suitable for you, volunteer to do regular shifts at convalescent homes, or join us for as long as you like.
You can also share your own ideas on how we could all combine our efforts to make Vantaa an even better place to live!
