WE ARE IN NEED OF VOLUNTEERS!!!
Right now, today, this minute.....we need people willing to deliver Home Delivered Meals to seniors in the communities of Middletown and Hidden Valley Lake. We offer mileage and a free lunch! What could be better that that!
Also, we are in need of those energetic, helpful servers for our lunch meal. While serving others, you can get to know new faces and also enjoy a free lunch!
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.
Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community in which you wish to live.
Leona Raines is one of our regular home delivery drivers. She delivers once a month. She lingers with some of the homebound seniors and keeps them company during lunch. She also serves in the dining room weekly. Leona is conscientious and dependable. We appreciate all that you do to enable seniors to remain in their homes, and that you make our diners feel welcome. Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.
Constance Mohun volunteers in the Video Library. She assists with cataloging and checking out our DVDs as well as organizing our library. She also selects which movies we watch. If you have any preference in movies, let Constance know. If there is a book you are seeking, ask Constance. She is our 'go-to' woman.
If you have a few hours to kill a week, how about becoming a greeter? It is a sit down job which lasts approximately one hour. Call 987-3113.

worthless, but because they’re
priceless.” ~Sherry Anderson
