The Greater Lewes Community Village opened it's doors and delivered its first service in November of 2013. The founding board members and local volunteers answered the phones, took requests, provided the services, raised funds, and created a community of neighbors helping neighbors in and around the city of Lewes.
Today we are known as Village Volunteers. We are providing services to a major portion of Sussex County, including the zip codes of Lewes (19958), Milton (19968) and Rehoboth Beach (19971). Volunteers are the heart of soul of our organizations. While we provide transportation for medical and non-medical needs; we are much more than a ride organization. We are the relationship organization. Learn more about who we are and what we do.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors:
Carefully screened volunteers from the community will help you with tasks that have become difficult or take another set of hands. We provide transportation, gardening, friendly visits, and more. We also make friendly visits, phone call check-ins, help you with electronic devices, occasional pet sitting, social and educational events covering a variety of interesting topics and wonderful presenters. Our Book Club meets monthly.
We can refer handy-persons, electricians, plumbers, gardeners, personal care assistants, computer technicians and others. Our vendors are established business persons in the community who have been individually screened and have successfully completed a reference and background check.
