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.
John Sullivan is one of our home delivery drivers. He delivers to our Hidden Valley seniors, as well as our Middletown seniors. He is reliable, consistent, friendly, and stable. Without our drivers, we wouldn’t be able to provide an important service for many seniors living where they want to be—in their own homes. Thank you, John, for your continued support. You are a true asset for this Center.
Our gardeners, Karen Giacopazzi and Marilyn Cox, are hard at it once again and have shared fruits of their labor (actually, vegetables) with the kitchen already this year. If you would like to assist our gardeners, let them know.
Our volunteers provide much needed assistance to our seniors. If any of you readers would be interested in joining our volunteers, let Tessie or Lori in the office know.
You can make a difference in someone’s life.
