Working as a volunteer in the Healthy Habits program is extremely rewarding. The children enjoy the lessons, snacks, and games. I have been rewarded with hugs and called Grandma by a lot of these children. At the end of the course, it is surprising how much of the material they retain and will continue to use throughout their life. If I have saved one child from obeseity, then I have accomplished a job well done. Come join the team for a fulfilling and rewarding time.

The folks at Seniors in Service are helping a lot of people in the Tampa Bay community and, as a volunteer, it feels good to be part of that important effort. It's too bad that more people don't see just how important the SiS mission is, and how hard the organization's staff works to help people in need. This is more than just a noble effort--many people benefit from what SiS provides--so every volunteer counts.

The agency is committed to serving children and seniors. It provides outstanding support to both the volunteer and to the organization where I volunteer. My work at the Brandon Senior Center, where I volunteer, has been most fulfilling and a great addition to life.

I volunteered with the Bill Payer Org many months ago. They sent me a profile to complete which included much personal information. I received one call asking if I was still interested to which I replied I was. That was it, never heard a word. I sent them e-mail asking for my personal information to be returned and I was ignored. I guess they really don't need help and they collect this information which goes God knows where!
