United Way Retired Senior and Volunteer Program recently recognized their volunteers across Northwest Indiana at their annual appreciation luncheons.
At the end of March, program staff shared news and recognized volunteers and station supervisors for the impact they make in Lake, LaPorte, Porter and Starke Counties.
“We could not accomplish what we do without their help,” said Kim Olesker, president and CEO of United Way of Porter County. “The heartfelt dedication of these volunteers is so inspirational.”
In 2017, more than 400 senior volunteers served more than 53,000 hours to assist thousands of Northwest Indiana residents. The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is designed to keep senior citizens 55 and over active in their community by offering a variety of volunteer opportunities, such as Meals on Wheels delivery, hospice care support and children mentoring programs. The program partners with 36 nonprofits to engage senior volunteers. To learn more, visit unitedwaypc.org.
