D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans

The DJ Jacobetti Home for Veterans is a long-term care facility in Marquette and home to 175+ veterans. Use your skills and interests to find (or create) a volunteer opportunity that benefits our local veterans and is rewarding for you. Like playing cribbage? Enjoy writing letters? Want to play Bingo? Like technology and can teach Internet 101? Care to sit and visit? Play an instrument? Love sports? There is truly something for everyone. We welcome new volunteers who are ready to share their passions and bring a smile to the members’ faces. Please contact Sarah Johnson at 906-226-3576 x2520396 or by e-mail at johnsons93@michigan.org. The D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans is located on 425 Fisher Street in Marquette. 

Marquette County Medical Care Facility

Volunteers are needed to work one-on-one with the geriatric population. Interested applicants are subject to a background check, a two-step TB test along with an interview and reference check prior to placement. This is a great way to share any special skills you have with the elderly. If you are interested, please contact Tina Koski at 906-204-1021. The Marquette County Medical Care Facility is located at 200 Saginaw Street in Ishpeming.
