Seniors in Service is a nonprofit organization that provides valuable resources to local communities through volunteerism.
Its main focus is helping people age 55 and older find the right volunteer opportunities for them that strengthen the local community.
Volunteers can serve and make a difference in a number of ways:
- Provide companionship. Help isolated homebound elders live independently, with dignity, in their own homes. Provide respite care for worn-out caregivers. Make weekly check-in phone calls for people who need support.
- Be a mentor or tutor to struggling children to help improve their academic and social skills
- Help at a food pantry or food bank to help end hunger
- Facilitate weekly workshops on nutrition and low-impact exercise
- Facilitate small groups that share about life transitions and productive aging topics
- Work with nonprofits through events, clerical, administrative duties, fundraising, advocates, advisors and more
Seniors in Service has received numerous awards, including the 2017 WEDU Be More Knowledgeable Award and the 2016 Tampa Bay Business Journal Nonprofit of the Year-Family Services.
The nonprofit also was named a finalist for the 2018 WEDU Be More Brilliant Award.
Volunteers at Seniors in Service have helped for more than 30 years in Hillsborough, Polk and Pinellas counties. Now, Pasco County also will be included.
Volunteers have flexible hours, and can choose when, where and how to pitch in.
Chris Noble is the liaison/coordinator for Pasco County and is looking to partner together to help make the community stronger.
