It is Spring Time. When I go out in my yard, I see daffodils peaking out. I love daffodils. They remind me of so many memories of my Great Grandmother O’Neal. She loved those flowers and birds. It is also Volunteer Month. Shelby Senior Services is so grateful for our volunteers. Here at Shelby Senior Services, volunteers come in many shapes. We have many opportunities to volunteer.
We have volunteers that help at the office at the front desk. They help with 4 hours one day a week. This consists of signing seniors up for programs, guiding people to appropriate staff member a needed, at times there are things to help the staff with such as stuff envelopes or getting the Horizon Newsletter ready to be mailed. We have business’ and individuals who volunteer to deliver food to shut in seniors two times a month.
We also have volunteers who can do friendly visiting with another senior. This could consist of a phone call or visit regularly. This helps the senior with lifting their mood but is also beneficial for the volunteer. This is a win – win situation. We have SHIPP counselors and a paralegal from the Senior Law Project who volunteer their time once a month in our office by appointment. We have volunteers who help with Rock Steady Boxing as Cornermen which is helping the seniors to be safe during this class time. These are just some of the opportunities to volunteer at Shelby Senior Services.
If you would like to volunteer, please don’t hesitate to call Liz Renton at 317-398-0127 to see what volunteer opportunity is best suited for you. We would love to hear from you.
