Will I be contacted to do other things?
Some of our members like to know about upcoming one-time or short-term projects. All Volunteer Delaware 50+ members receive a monthly volunteer opportunity mailing that they are free to respond to if they choose. Volunteers may ask to be removed from the mailing list if they are not interested in additional volunteer opportunities.
Why does Volunteer Delaware 50+ need to know my hours each month?
It is important we receive your volunteer hours. We record your hours each month and those with enough volunteer hours receive an invitation to an annual recognition event. When we do not receive hours for a member, he or she becomes “inactive.” Inactive volunteers are not covered by our supplemental insurance.
