Volunteerism is an important aspect of the Senior Center because it provides ways to contribute to the community. Seniors gain a sense of self-worth by sharing their talents and time with others.
Some of the volunteer opportunities that seniors enjoy participating in are:
- "Buttons are Us" Group (making and selling buttons for various events)
- Nursing Home visitations
- Presents for Patients
- Creating various decorations for special events and organizations
- Performing for others
- Assembling badges for school programs through the Erie County Sheriff's office
- Correlating correspondences
