To all who have given so generously of your time, Clermont Senior Services sincerely thanks you. Last year, volunteers at Clermont Senior Services donated over 23,000 hours of service to Clermont County seniors. Many CSS volunteers work one-on-one with homebound seniors and have little opportunity to build relationships with staff and other volunteers. They work alone but the relationships they form with the seniors are what they find so fulfilling.
Why do these volunteers give so much time? Because they want to make a difference in someone’s life. They sincerely care about people and they have a heart for service. The relationships that form between the volunteers and the people they serve are touching. Sometimes just a kind word or random act can make a real difference in someone’s life.
Some volunteers help in the office, some entertain or teach classes at senior centers, some serve on the board of trustees, and others deliver meals or grocery shop. Some are one-time volunteers who clean yards, paint houses, or make minor repairs. A famous Albert Einstein quote says it all,
“Only a life in the service of others is worth living.”
Clermont Senior Services invites you to join our Heart-to-Heart Volunteer Program. This experience is designed to be enjoyable and beneficial to both the volunteer and the senior. Volunteers and seniors are matched according to interests, needs and location.
