Main Topic: Senior Volunteer Service Opportunities in the Greater Houston Area
Community Moment: Heathen Holiday Proposal by Jacob Atchison
Main talk Summary:
The Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center Sponsors 3 Americorps Seniors programs: the Retired Senior Volunteer Program of Southeast Texas, The Foster Grandparents Program of Harris County, and the Senior Companions Program of Harris County. These programs connect volunteers age 55 and up with opportunities for service in their communities, support them in their service, and host recognition events annually to celebrate and reflect on their service. With this time Haley Eakin will speak about the benefits of volunteering for both our seniors and the communities they serve, explain some of the ways our volunteers serve their communities, and provide contact information on how to get connected with the programs, either as a volunteer or as a new community service partner.
Haley Eakin is the Director of Senior Community Services at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center.
