The Village of Great Neck Plaza is seeking volunteers to assist on its Senior Span Program, which provides projects and programs for our senior citizens. We are looking for volunteers to "Call a Friend," making contact with one of our shut in seniors for companionship and friendship. Other similar tasks need volunteers, such as helping a senior with an arts & craft project, reading poetry to seniors, assiting in errands, etc.
There are also seminars held regularly at Village Hall. Each seminar is on a separate topic focusing on health, nutrition, aging issues, managing finances, and general senior education. Candidates must have professional expertise in an area and be comfortable with public speaking. For further information, please contact Mayor's Assistant, at (516) 482-4500, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
