Santa Barbara Village Volunteer Recruitment Event

Senior-living organization seeks volunteers

When: Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, noon to 1 p.m.

Where: Santa Barbara Village, 524 Chapala St., Santa Barbara

Cost: Free

Age limit: 18+

Categories: Volunteer

Description:

Local nonprofit Santa Barbara Village, which helps local seniors stay independent and living in their own homes as they age, is in need of more volunteers to help their members in a variety of ways. “Just a little of your time can make a big difference in someone’s life,” says Naomi Kovacs, Executive Director of Santa Barbara Village. “Even something that seems so simple, like help changing a light bulb or preparing a meal, or getting a ride to an appointment, can make all the difference to someone.”

For those who are interested in volunteering, but are unable to attend this event, individual sessions can be scheduled with the Village’s Volunteer Coordinator.

All volunteers must be 18 years or older and pass a criminal background check. Volunteer drivers must also pass a DMV check and provide proof of auto insurance coverage.

To RSVP or to set up an individual session, contact Dan Wozniak of Santa Barbara Village: dan@sbvillage.org or (805) 729-5038.
