Volunteer Opportunities

A few current COVID opportunities include: writing articles for newspaper and Council newsletter (to include interviewing clients); documenting history of Council; outside landscaping of clients' homes and Council's centers; writing "thinking of you" notes to seniors sheltering-in-place; potentially helping seniors with their technology devices (e.g., tablets) if this can be done remotely or through outside or phone contact; presenting a virtual program (Zoom or You-tube); and other similar activities.
