Senior Services Southwest Michigan needs you!
We are seeking volunteers who believe in our mission: To promote and enhance the independence and well-being of older adults, adults with disabilities and those who care for them. Please join us as we strive to make a difference in the lives of individuals throughout our community.
Volunteering has been said to be the “secret ingredient” to staying healthy and fulfilled. Giving back is not just good for you, but it makes a difference for others that last a lifetime. If you would like to make that difference and find yourself with some free time, why not consider committing a few hours to volunteering.
If you would like additional information about volunteering or have questions on how to begin, please contact Tracie Wheeler at 269-382-0515 or click here.
