Become a Volunteer

The Tender welcomes anyone who wishes to open up their hearts and donate their time and skills to serving our seniors. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available. Any amount of time is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

The Tender hosts a golf tournament, a major fundraising event each year, as well as smaller fundraisers throughout the year. These fundraisers take a lot of planning and preparation months in advance of the event day. Volunteers are essential in making these events successful, ultimately benefiting the seniors and their caregivers.

Help enrich the life of a senior today. For more information or to volunteer your time and/or services, contact Kim Zoccali at
