Winter Package Delivery

DOROT’s Winter Package Delivery brings hundreds of older adults and volunteers together to share warmth and companionship. Join us this January in Manhattan or Westchester to deliver a thoughtful, seasonal care package and connect by phone with an older neighbor!

"It was a pleasure speaking with the volunteer. It is a comfort having DOROT in our lives. The bag of goodies is a very welcome treat and very much appreciated. DOROT is a blessing for all the people you serve!" - Ruth (DOROT senior)
