During National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, Sixty and Better saluted our volunteers who help transform the lives of older adults every day.

Throughout the week, we recognized 513 activity center volunteers with certificates of appreciation and a Sixty and Better reusable tote bag for their volunteer service in 2017.

“These volunteers are essential in reducing older adult isolation and improving nutrition at centers, building awareness about falls prevention and aging-in-place in wellness workshops, and providing advocacy throughout the community,” Sixty and Better Volunteer Coordinator Gloria Kuykendall said.

Last year, 1,135 volunteers donated more than 105,000 hours, which equates to a value of well over $2.5 million, directly enhancing Sixty and Better’s vision of older adults staying connected, healthy, active, and contributing to community needs.

“We would not be the organization we are without the commitment and passion of our volunteers,” Gloria added. “To our fabulous volunteers—thank you!”
