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 51,000+ 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.
