Seniors With Skills Volunteering
More Information: Click here

Our most popular program is the Cards and Knitting Program. Seniors With Skills sends volunteers to retirement residences where they can make cards and knitted items (caps, blankets) with seniors for hospital patients. This idea has had much success so far, and volunteers are responsible for introducing the program into retirement residences in their area.

This includes delivering a presentation about how the donation process works, speaking to the life and programs director as well as donating items to a local hospital. This allows seniors to be involved in the community and our volunteers always brighten their day!
