Volunteer with the Senior Hub Outreach for Volunteers (SHOUT) Program – Oct. 2019
Studies prove people who volunteer tend to live happier, longer, more fulfilling lives. They feel healthier, are less depressed and isolated, and volunteering provides access, structure, and support.
High priority: Delivering Meals on Wheels for Senior Hub. There are several open routes in Federal Heights, Northglenn, Thornton and Westminster and we need drivers for them. Routes take 1-2 hours one day per week. Drivers may help on more than one day if they’re interested. Contact Jessica Gonzalez at 303-426-4408 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We need additional volunteers to help in our elementary tutor/mentor program in Adams 1 (Mapleton), Adams 12 (Five Star), Adams 50 (Westminster) and Adams 27J (Brighton). Call or email us for information. It only takes a couple hours per week. These early elementary kids can really use your help to become better readers.
Here are a few other examples of where our volunteers help: providing in-home visitation; assisting at Adult Day Centers; serving at YMCA sites; helping foster kids as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA); doing data entry; helping in our community gardens; helping in older adult/senior centers; serving at congregate meal sites; serving in school offices or libraries, hospitals, food banks; helping military veterans; public speaking such as giving talks about how to avoid financial exploitation; assisting police departments; helping in nursing homes/assisted living centers; and more. We also have jobs that can be done from home such as volunteer calling, phone companionship, and making quilts or knitted lap robes for nursing home and homeless shelter clients. (We also accept donated 4-ply yarn for our volunteers to use.)
We have indoor and outdoor opportunities; single-event and repeat volunteer jobs; individual and group-style activities; and many ways to serve with our organizational, agency and governmental partners. Our SHOUT volunteers serve in more than 50 locations in Adams County and the eastern part of Arapahoe County (Aurora, Centennial and the I-70 corridor to Deer Trail.) Most of our volunteers are 50 or older, but we gladly accept younger adults too. For information about these and other opportunities call Senior Hub’s SHOUT Department 303-426-4408. Please do it now!
