Volunteers Needed For Lunches With Older Adult Community


Every day we serve hot lunches to a group of older adults who are part of the New Beginnings Center for Contemporary Adults 60+

Physical health issues aren’t the only challenges we face as we age, it’s also so important to have an active social life and mental stimulation. The Riverdale Y is one way older adults in our community can stay connected and get ALL of their needs met.

That’s where you come in (I hope): We need volunteers to help us set up, serve lunches, and break down the lunch space. This service obviously is valuable to the older adults we serve, but I find that it’s equally enriching for those of us doing the serving.

If you’re interested, you’ll only need to commit to one day a week from 10 am – 1 pm  (though you’re welcome to signup for multiple days, if you’d like). Volunteers must be vaccinated and able to lift, push, and pull at least 15 pounds.

Can you help out? If so, could you reply to let me know you’re interested and what day(s) you’d like to signup for? There’s no obligation in expressing interest … I’d be happy to talk more with you about any questions or concerns you have before you commit!

Hope to hear from you soon,
