Being a volunteer at Nashville CARES is a meaningful and rewarding experience.
More than 400 volunteers help support virtually every department at Nashville CARES, including Client Services, Meal Programs, Fund Development and Marketing, Education, General Office/Administration, and Special Events.
Volunteers help clients directly by delivering food, working in our food pantry or helping make and serve lunch to clients. Members of CARE Teams are cleaning clients' homes and yards, driving them to the doctor, going to the grocery, or providing friendship and support.
Participation in the outreach programs of the Education Department involves speaking to community groups about CARES, staffing booths at community events, distributing prevention materials, and by working on research projects.
Volunteers are the mainstay of many office activities, making sure that newsletters and invitations are mailed on time, filing or doing critical data entry.
And, of course, none of CARES's special events such as the Nashville AIDS Walk, Dining Out for Life, World AIDS Day Red Ribbon Breakfast and Avant-Garde couldn't happen without the help of volunteers with marketing and mailings and the planning and execution of event day activities.
Nashville CARES volunteers have been recognized as leaders in the community!
