Volunteering at the Center
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!
