VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Meals on Wheels: The center needs volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors of Rockdale County. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday at 10:30 a.m.  Meals on Wheels volunteers usually deliver one morning per week, and meals are picked up at the Center. Volunteers drive their own vehicle to deliver meals.

Kitchen Duty: The center needs daily help with packing the Meals on Wheels coolers for the volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers to pick up. Help serving lunch to the seniors who come to the center on a daily basis is also welcome.

Ceramics Room: The Olivia Haydel Senior Center ceramics room has equipment to pour molds, paint, and fire.  Seniors sell ceramics to raise funds for the Senior Center. Volunteers are encouraged to share their creativity.

Friendly Visitors & Entertainers: Just like to visit with folks or have a special talent that you would like to share? Come on down to the center and visit with our senior members who come for the daily activities. 

Speak a foreign language? We have a variety of members from all different cultures around the world. Come and exchange knowledge with them.

Computer Lab: We have a computer lab that just begs for computer literate people to join us. Maybe you could help one of the senior computer students. Show them different games to play or how to use the internet.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Center, in any way, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
