Volunteering at the Center

Volunteering in the community

As volunteers, you are the very Heart and Soul of this community.

Volunteers at the Senior Center provide 65% of the labor required to run the Center and they give over 55,000+ hours of service to the community. It is impossible to completely understand the enormity of this gift. The blessing is that those who give also receive. Clinical studies have shown that seniors who volunteer are happier, have an increased sense of well-being, enjoy broader social networks, and live longer!

To find your volunteer niche, call Kimberly Haynes at 974-7756 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

It’s a great way to meet people, do some good work, and have fun.  The yard sale schedule is as follows:

Lawn Care Crew Volunteers

The weather’s is warmer and our Center needs your help. We need volunteers who have an affinity for keeping a well-kept lawn.  And you probably know that an overgrown lawn is not safe for Senior’s to be walking over and really just not a nice thing for our members and guests to see as they enter our building every day.  Lawn mower is provided and the mowing can be done so it fits into your schedule.  If you love working outdoors, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity. Volunteers will be needed from May to October to help with cutting the grass, trimming, pulling weeds, raking, etc.  Come and spend the summer with us outdoors!
