VOLUNTEERING

The needs facing our seniors is growing. And while we are meeting the needs of the seniors on Kane County, we cannot do it alone. We depend greatly on volunteers to help us achieve our mission.

Please consider volunteering a small amount of your time in one of the many areas where we serve seniors. 

There are many different ways you can have an impact on seniors. From preparing and delivering meals to seniors in their homes to helping coordinate events and activities or just to be a friendly, smiling face, we need volunteers.

Did you know that for many seniors who live alone, the volunteer delivering their meal might be the only person they see that day?

HOW YOU CAN HELP

There are many ways that you can get involved with the mission of Kane Senior Council to help seniors in Kane County.

Below are just a few of the opportunities that are available for you to offer your time:

Volunteers pick up pre-packaged meals at our kitchen and then use their personal vehicle to deliver the meals to the home bound senior. Routes are scheduled so that delivering meals to the seniors is as convenient as possible for our delivery volunteers.

Visit Home Delivered Meals / Meals On Wheels

Many times, our volunteers are the only people that a senior sees in a day. That is why it is so important that our volunteers take a moment to check on our seniors to make sure they are doing well and are not experiencing any issues. If there are any concerns or issues, we connect with the senior’s emergency contact so they can get the help and assistance they need.

Visit Well-Being Checks

Many of our seniors who live alone have pets to keep them company. Our volunteers help our seniors take care of their pets by bringing pet food and helping out where needed. We can use people to deliver pet food and even help with pet food donations.

Visit Pet Food Assistance

For our more active seniors, during lunchtime, our community dining sites provide them with time to get out and socialize with other seniors. Our volunteers can help out at the community dining centers in the kitchen or helping to serve our seniors meals.

Visit Community Dining

A network volunteer is someone who is well connected to the local community. They help spread the word about the programs we offer and help share the activities that we do to help our seniors. Volunteers can share emails, help coordinate events, share social media posts and other activities to bring awareness and support to what we do for our seniors.
