Heineberg Community & Senior Center in search of volunteers

Burlington, Vt. - The Heineberg Community & Senior Center is staffed by three part-time employees, along with 20 volunteers, and is a non-profit.

Executive Director Beth Hammond is looking for more people, hopefully 15 to 20 to become a volunteer at the center. With 450 active participants, it's becoming more difficult to over programing and meal service. 

"On any given week it could be about three hundred (participants), that is for meals and physical activities," said Hammond. For many of the participants, this place is a second home.

"Isolation is a big risk within our demographic. Getting them out to socialize learn new skills. We offer free and heavily discounted activities programs and meals," Hammond said.

Volunteers are needed to lead classes, and help serve meals. An informational meeting will be held Tuesday, January 9th at 10 a.m. at the Heineberg Community & Senior Center located at 14 Heineberg Road in Burlington.

You can reach out directly to Beth Hammond at 863-3982 ext. 2 with any questions.
