Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Naples Senior Center at JFCS offers weekly support groups for individuals with early to mid-stage dementia from 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM. Each group meets weekly for four hours including brain games, music therapy, chair exercises, and lunch. Volunteers are needed for our ongoing Thursday dementia group or to help fill in every now and then when our regular group volunteers are away on other days.
All of our volunteers are integral to the successful running of this program. They help to create a safe and comfortable environment for our participants. All of our current volunteers always leave the group feeling really great. It is a very rewarding opportunity. Our volunteers often say they get more out of the group than the participants.
If you are interested in volunteering with NSC or want some more information on some of our other volunteer opportunities, please contact our Manager of Volunteer Services, Marna Barany at firstname.lastname@example.org or (239) 325-4444.
