Volunteer Opportunities COVID-19

Overview

Hand-heart with the sun shinning through

Eskaton thanks you for valuing elders and their well-being. 

You have reached out to Eskaton with a compassionate desire to share your support during these unprecedented times. Thank you for joining us as we spark joy and spread goodwill among those whose lives have recently been so changed.

In the midst of social isolation, providing meaningful connections remains a top priority of Eskaton. With your help, our mission to enhance the quality of life of older adults is strengthened and supported more than ever. Thank you for demonstrating what we now refer to as #QuarantineKindness

We invite you to display this kindness in the following ways:

  1. Send letters of love and encouragement. Your personal letters can be filled with artwork, pictures, jokes and positive, hope filled messages.
  2. Create gift bags or care packages. Items residents would enjoy include adult coloring books, watercolors, colored pencils, crosswords puzzles, a deck of cards, word searches, cozy socks and personal notes. 

Please deliver all letters and gift bags to:

​​​Eskaton Support Center
c/o #QuarantineKindness
5105 Manzanita Avenue
Carmichael, CA 95608

 

  1. Capture smiles through video. Send your personalized messages throughout Eskaton. Record your words of encouragement and/or snapshots of talents in a 30-second video clip. This is a great opportunity for individuals, families and socially distanced groups to spread positivity and joy. These recordings will be put together in an Eskaton YouTube video.

    By uploading your video, you are providing permission to Eskaton to publish and distribute the content on internet, social media and other places of our choice.

  2. Deliver groceries to isolated elders living in their own homes in the greater Sacramento area. All deliveries will be placed outside the resident’s front door. After completing the volunteer application, you will be invited to view an online volunteer orientation and to sign volunteer forms.
