Through the help of our dedicated and diligent volunteers we deliver a delicious and nutritious meal for the citizens unable to cook for themselves as well as provide meals to those guests who come to the center for lunch.  More than 25 people volunteer, in some capacity, for the Nutrition Program year round.  We are so very thankful for such a incredible group of people who give of themselves each day.  

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Volunteers are always needed and appreciated.

  • Our greatest need at this time is for additional delivery volunteers.  Drivers can be full-time, part-time or a substitute.  All help is appreciated!

Other areas in which we could use volunteers is:

  • Activity instructors - If you have a special talent or skill you would like to share ex. crafts, games, painting, music, please contact us!
  • Help out with fundraisers or any special events.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition to volunteers, we are also looking for Pen Pals!  Several of our senior members are excited about teaming up with Mrs. Watson’s 4th grade writing class to build connections through the underutilized art form of letter writing.  This program will allow for the opportunity of developing and tuning fine motor skills, practice a useful cognitive exercise, and to express creativity.  This exercise is also an effort to connect generations as well as nurture a compassion for others and encourage creating enjoyable and enriching connections.  If you know of a senior who would benefit from and would like to participate in this unique and fun opportunity, please contact the Nutrition Program.  We hope to begin our pen pal program in November and we would like to have a pen pal for each student.
