About

This volunteer opportunity is for groups only!

Corporate or Community Groups can sign up for this opportunity to host an event at one of our affordable housing sites located all throughout California. Build community by planning a party for our seniors: decorating, hosting activities and crafts, and serving food. These events are generally hosted during regular business hours, and we cannot host groups over the weekend. We also ask that the groups plan the event (with staff support and input) and bring any needed supplies (although we generally have some supplies onsite). For spring themed events in the past we have hosted groups who've lead spring themed parties with snacks and an spring themed arts and crafts project, have helped the seniors with spring cleaning projects, and have had groups purchase, package and distribute spring cleaning products in baskets door to door.

Duties:

Volunteer group will plan and host an event geared towards either seniors. Purchase any decorations or supplies needed for activities, raffles, etc. Set the tables, serve food, sit and talk with residents and engage with them. Clean and clear community space on site, pack up all items brought.

Skills needed:

Must have excellent interpersonal skills, organizational skills, and a positive personality and demeanor. Able to approach and welcome all types of people.

Benefit:

Volunteer groups will have the opportunity to work closely together to problem solve, be creative and execute a fun event, spend time with new people, and help provide a fun experience to low-income seniors or families.
