XARSC VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
The Xenia Adult Recreation & Services Center is a wonderful place to give the "gift of time" and give back to YOUR OWN community! Volunteering not only lifts up those you are helping, but it also lifts your spirts and keeps you active. There's a quote that says "If you want to feel good, DO good" and what better way to feel good, or even feel AWESOME, than to VOLUNTEER! Call 376-4353 to inquire about volunteering!
Here are just a few ways you can give back to your community:
Meals on wheels delivery driver: Deliver hot meals to seniors in Xenia 1 day per week or on call as a sub. Delivery is from 10:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Must have own car.
Office Help: 1 afternoon or morning a week answer phones, transfer calls, assist visitors at the front desk, direct seniors to classes, help with mailings, etc.
Newsletter Helpers: Help out once a month with putting together our newsletter mailings
Telephone Friend: Become a phone friend to a senior who is lonely through our longtime Telassurance Program, in existence at XARSC over 30 years.
Class leader/Instructor: If you have a skill to share, want to lead a class, we invite you to speak to Michele to offer your time and talents to volunteer in Programs.
Special Event Crew:Help serve meals, assist with clean up at XARSC special events/monthly events.
To inquire about volunteering at XARSC, stop by the center and speak to the front office!
