Worcester County’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

Time is precious.

Use it to make a difference.

55 and older?  Lead with your experience!

Volunteer To:

Feed the Hungry

One person, then another and another planting seeds, tending gardens, harvesting the bounty, supplying a food bank, delivering to food pantries, or bringing meals to the hungry feeds the entire community.

Serve a Veteran

One veteran needs you… today.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

           - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Help the Children

One child

One teacher

One book and

One pen can change the world.

Education is the only solution.

              - Malala Yousefzai

Inform Seniors

One piece of information shared with many…

“Don’t grow only for yourself.  If you have some worthwhile information, share it.  By reaching others, you will reach yourself.”             

                     - Rabbi Noah Weinberg

Care for Others

One hand reaching out to hold another hand may be just the reassurance needed. One smile engaging another is sure to help two people feel better. One driver helping someone keep an important medical appointment becomes part of the cure.

Enjoy Special Events

One morning set aside to enjoy each other.

One afternoon paired with joyful companionship; one evening filled with laughter and hugs – a community of volunteers.
