Every day there are tons of organizations that rely heavily on senior volunteers. Whether seniors volunteer 5 hours a week or take on a full time volunteering opportunity of 40 hours a week, it is every hour that counts. Different opportunities require different amounts of volunteer hours. It is up to the seniors to make every hour count.
Any amount of time
Seniors volunteer any amount of time and hours they have available. One opportunity may require a few hours a month of volunteering, while another opportunity needs more hours than one volunteer could possibly fill. It is up to each individual as to the amount of time they donate. Each volunteer opportunity is different. Some volunteer opportunities require so little hours of volunteering, that a senior volunteer may want to take on more than one opportunity. This enables seniors to make the most out of their time. Other opportunities require numerous volunteers just to fill the needs of that one opportunity.
Get your friends together
Senior volunteers can enlist the help of a group of friends to fill the needs of one organization. Some organizations will automatically put groups together to fill their needs. It can help an organization greatly if a group of volunteers walk in together an offer a set amount of hours.
Every hour is treasured
Organizations are always in need of senior volunteers. Needless to say, whether seniors volunteer a few hours or many hours, every hour is needed and treasured. Volunteer hours are a precious commodity. Seniors are welcomed no matter how many hours in their daily schedule that they have available to donate. Every hour of time that a senior volunteer donates enables an organization to stretch their budget dollars that much further. Volunteering allows organizations to use their money in other areas that otherwise would be tied up with salaries. Thus, volunteering for even a few hours can have a huge impact.
