Volunteering can be a fulfilling way to give back and can also lead to new interests and lasting friendships. If you’re looking for new ways to get involved, AARP has some great suggestions.
The Create the Good site is a great place to start if you’re looking for ways to give back. You can search by zip code to find local organizations that need volunteers. There are even ways to volunteer from home that can be just as impactful.
One interesting way to give back that you may not have thought of is through your hobbies. If you enjoy knitting, for example, you can make blankets for local shelters. Or if you’re a keen gardener, you could start a community garden.
Whatever your interests, there’s sure to be a way for you to give back that will make a difference. At The Seniors Center, we encourage retirees to never give up on their passions.
