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.
Jon Meyer volunteers as a Meals on Wheels driver on Tuesdays. He also is one of our Board members. Meals on Wheels is a very special program aimed at assisting seniors unable to shop and/or cook for themselves. Five days a week, the drivers for the Meals on Wheels program serve as a lifeline to the “outside” world.
Darla McSweeney volunteers as a Server on call. She fills in when there is an empty space due to an unexpected absence or a planned vacation. Sitting at the table and being waited on is a pleasant luxury. Do you know your server’s name? A thank you now and then would be nice.
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.
You can make a difference.
If you miss waiting on your family at meal time,
now is your chance to relive all of those “fond” memories.
Give it a shot!
