Volunteer Opportunities

Updated  9/1/2021

Are you interested in volunteering? The following are our top needs:

RSVP Drivers for Medical Appointments  (upd 9/1/21)

 

We are looking for volunteers to take seniors to medical appointments outside of Verona.

 

This is a flexible position and drivers are offered mileage reimbursement and additional liability insurance.  Please consider giving the gift of independence to our seniors and veterans.

 

Meals on Wheels Drivers (upd 9/1/21)

 

We are looking for volunteers to deliver meals to area seniors.  Meal deliveries take place Monday – Thursday starting at 11:30 AM.

 

This is a flexible position and drivers are offered mileage reimbursement and additional liability insurance.  A couple hours a week can mean so much to seniors in need of nutritious meals.

 

Outdoor Plant Helper

 

Do you love the outdoors?  We are looking for volunteers to help manage and water our new raised garden beds.  This opportunity is weather dependent but most weeks would require 2-3 visits each week.

 

 

Cleaning Assistants:

 

Is cleaning your thing? Then we have an opportunity for you! The Verona Senior Center is looking for a few volunteers to help staff clean tables and chairs after in-house programs.  This opportunity would be flexible and would vary from week to week.

 

 

Kitchen Helpers: (upd 9/1/21)

 

Do you enjoy working with food? The Senior Center is looking for a couple volunteers to help prepare the Meals on Wheels and Drive Up meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This opportunity would require standing for 2-3 hours and the ability to lift up to 10 pounds

Front Desk Volunteers:

 

Do you love customer service? The Senior Center is looking for a few volunteers to provide a welcoming face at the front desk. Duties include answering phones, greeting visitors, and registering people for programs using the computer. This opportunity would have a set weekly schedule, and shifts would be 3 – 4 hours a day.

 

 

Loan Closet Managers

 

 

Do you like working with people and offering assistance in finding resources? The Senior Center is looking for 2-3 volunteers to maintain inventory in our loan closet and schedule appointments with people who want to borrow or donate items.

Board Member:

 

Do you like a variety of clerical work, or helping with fundraising activities? The Verona Senior Center is looking for a few board members. Duties include attending a once a month board meeting, helping with fundraisers, promote or deliver program notices to businesses. This opportunity would vary from week to week.

Seniors—The Board of Directors needs your help!

Updated 3/28/2021

 

We want your Senior Center to offer the programs and activities that most interest our members. As a member of the Board of Directors, you are able to share your ideas and suggestions and assist in “making things happen.”

 

Our Board meetings are once a month from 9:30 to 11:00 am. You would also need to give some time to assist with Board functions during the year. We are an active, fun Board and welcome new faces.

 

If you are interested, please give your name and phone number to the receptionist at the front desk or call the Senior Center at 845-7471 with that information. One of our Board members will call you to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

 

Please consider joining our Board and contributing to one of the best Senior Centers around.
