Many patients undergoing treatment for cancer or other illnesses find it difficult to perform routine chores and feats involving physical strength. Dartmouth CAPS seeks to assist people receiving treatment for cancer or long-term illness by providing support to local residents at their homes and performing important services for patients staying at the Upper Valley Hostel.
Projects for local residents have included raking leaves, cleaning gutters, stacking wood, shoveling snow, and food shopping. Volunteers at Upper Valley Hostel visit with guests, clean laundry and support guest services. By becoming a part of CAPS, you become a member of a core work crew of students providing relief to people receiving treatment for difficult illnesses.
