Neighbor to Neighbor’s work is made possible by the 15,000 hours of service contributed annually by our dedicated corps of 50 – 75 volunteers.  They range in age from 14 to 90 years.  Many volunteers work a regular weekly shift.  Community groups provide volunteer coverage on Saturdays and students can volunteer on Thursday afternoons & Saturday mornings.  Volunteers receive formal and on the job training.  Community service hours are available.

For information about volunteering, contact Duncan Lawson at dlawson@ntngreenwich.org or Carolina Mendez at cmendez@ntngreenwich.org
