Lunch Program Volunteers
Volunteers of the Kingston Senior Center, under the direction of the
Nutrition Manager, do the preparation work for the meals, serve the meals to the
members, clean trays and pans, take out the garbage and assist in whatever else
needs to be done.
Time and Manpower
The volunteers commit to several hours of time weekly. The manpower is
needed to work effectively and efficiently together.
Whenever an individual comes to the center for the first time, the
volunteers always welcome them to the center and happily tell them how much they
enjoy the center and what a wonderful place it is to come.
The audience served is primarily members of the center, guests and staff.
None, since they are all volunteers
Impact On Center
The lunch program has a huge impact on the center. It is, many times, what
draws people to the center but then results in positive socialization. This
then, leads to the individuals becoming involved in many other activities that
the center has to offer.
Some times talking to other Nutrition Managers and volunteers from other
centers provide new ideas.
Good volunteers are important, they do their work happily, do a
wonderful job and provide a positive impression for others who may be interested
in becoming a volunteer. They are welcomed with open arms.
