Meal Makers & Bakers
Occasional or regularly-scheduled.
Food is love! Join the list of chefs, cooks, and bakers that help fill community bellies and hearts. Provide meals or special treats for neighbors. Bring light refreshments to gatherings. Contribute your favorite dish to a large community feast. Tell us what you most like to create in the kitchen or what you have made in abundance, and we’ll reach out when there’s an opportunity to share your best.
Occasional. Time commitment for each errand varies.
This team transports items, not people (though you can be on the Transportation Team too!) Pick up and deliver medications, food, or other necessities for a neighbor. Move furniture, boxes, medical equipment, or other items. Help CCL with a supply run if you’re out and about when a need arises. Sometimes there’s a request to transport items or hand-deliver paperwork further away (for example, to Concord, Manchester, or Boston.) We ask for two days’ notice, but sometimes reach out for a more urgent need. Run an errand when it fits your schedule.
Program & Event Aides
There are lots of roles! Occasional or regularly-scheduled tasks. Time commitment varies.
Help staff programs and events. Host pre-planned gatherings (like Aging in Our Community conversations, Galentine’s Day, or a community lunch). Join in or substitute on an ongoing team (like the Lyme Food Pantry crew or Neighborhood Captains). Share a skill or passion, through an educational program, a wellness service, or a community performance (like a drawing class, Reiki treatments, or a variety show number). Jump into event logistics (like set up, clean up, registration, parking, or food service). Promote opportunities (put up posters, tell friends, help with social media or other marketing).
