Gold Coats


Volunteer at Perry Memorial

Our “Gold Coat Program” offers many services to the visitors and staff at Perry Memorial.  New volunteers are always welcome.

Do you enjoy walking in a climate controlled environment, meeting new people and providing a helpful hand to others?  Whether you prefer lots of exercise or a stationary job, want to socialize or prefer to work alone, we have room for you in our family of caregivers.  On the day of volunteering, Gold Coats may enjoy a free meal in our Park Avenue Café.  The pay may not be great…but the smiles and the “Thank You” that you receive from everyone make your experience a lot of fun!
