Lori's Hands: An Awesome Volunteer Opportunity Started by a Collegiette

When Sarah LaFave founded Lori’s Hands in 2009 at the University of Delaware, it was in memory of her mom, Lori, who passed away in 2003 after a long battle with breast cancer. Sarah wanted to find a way to help chronically ill members of her community by completing basic tasks for them, such as doing light cleaning or running errands. Since 2009, Lori’s Hands has grown into a nonprofit organization that has helped many clients in Delaware, and her awesome organization has blossomed over the past five years.

Lori's Hands helps chronically ill patients, most of whom are older adults. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about community heath service though developing relationships with clients as well as classroom instruction.

If you are interested in starting a chapter of Lori’s Hands at your university, email [email protected]. The volunteers at Lori’s Hands are always looking for caring and passionate members to join and make life a little bit easier for chronically ill patients across America.
