Boston Cares is a great platform that connects volunteers to projects I am passionate about in a fast and easy-to-do manner.
Q: What has been the most meaningful part of your service as a Cooperative Elder Services volunteer?
Spending quality time with seniors and at the same time an opportunity to give back.
Q: Why do you think others should volunteer at Cooperative Elder Services ?
It is an great opportunity not only to give back to the community but also lends perspective on their life experiences and stories.
Q: Do you have a favorite story about your Cooperative Elder Services experience you’d like to share?
One of my favorite moments is when we did arts and crafts with patriotic turtles. When the seniors’ faces lit up after finishing the crafts project. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had and I’m grateful to have shared in their happiness.
