Volunteers are essential to the Senior Center! They ensure that we can continue to serve the seniors in Middletown, Cobb and Hidden Valley Lake areas. They serve as welcoming greeters to assist at lunchtime with signing in and providing direction. Volunteer drivers make it possible to provide our Meals on Wheels program, which is a lifeline between seniors and the "outside world". Our drivers are on the job five days a week, checking on our 'shut-ins" and reporting any severe changes in their health. Servers are ever busy serving beverages and plates of food to the lunch guests. Volunteer librarians tend to the video lending library making it easy to check out from a large supply of videos for home use. Gardeners use their talents to ensure our garden boxes are well tended and supply fresh produce for our lunches. Our own mailman picks up the mail daily and delivers to office. We have a birthday caller who calls and wishes each one a happy birthday each month. Thrift store workers sort, label, display and organize many wonderful treasures in the thrift store. Volunteers sweep floors, work in the office, help with newsletter, set tables, wash windows and more. Board Members help direct and work tirelessly in support of the center. And of course, there are always our fund-raising opportunities for volunteering. We appreciate each one and encourage you to get involved and share your talents.
Our dedicated and reliable volunteers help support a wide range of essential services for our Center.
Our volunteers represent hours and hours of free labor. A must for a non-profit organization.
Dennis Gilson does double duty. He serves the lunch guests as well as drives for Meals on Wheels. Dennis serves on Mondays and Wednesdays each week. He delivers Meals on Wheels on Thursdays to Cobb residents. I almost missed his third “duty”. He is also a caregiver for our homebound seniors. Thank you Dennis. You are truly a caring, giving asset to our community.
Joanne Eberle is a true asset as well. She not only volunteers as a line dancing instructor two mornings a week (Mondays and Tuesdays, come and check it out), but is also a volunteer greeter. She has a delightful personality. She is always generous with her smiles and happy disposition..
Volunteering can help you reduce stress and combat depression. If you would be interested in joining our volunteers, let Tessie or Lori in the office know. No experience is necessary. Too shy? Sign up with a friend.
