National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week in the United States was first established via Presidential Proclamation signed by Richard Nixon in 1974. The Senior Center will hold a special Celebration on April 19th in honor of Volunteer Week.

Besides the benefits to society, scientific studies have shown that individuals who volunteer enjoy psychological and physical benefits, including increased satisfaction, improved sense of belonging, lower blood pressure, increased protection from Alzheimer's, and decreased mortality.
