There are many volunteer opportunities available through the Preble County Council on Aging Volunteer Program. We prepare holiday food baskets each December for shut-ins and those in need. We serve refreshments at Whispering Christmas at Fort St. Clair Park. Volunteers help with the Thursday Night Weekly Dance, Home Delivered Meals, “Senior Day” and other events and activities. Volunteers help at the Senior Center with the mailing of the bi-monthly “Senior Scene” newsletter, and serve as a host/hostess in our Decade’s Diner. We match you with a volunteer position that you will enjoy.
If you would like to be a volunteer, please call the Preble County Council on Aging at 937.456.4947 or 1.800.238.5146.
Home Delivered Meal Program
The Preble County Council on Aging provides Congregate and Home Delivered Meals to seniors in Preble County. Our Home Delivered Meal program needs volunteer back-up drivers to work three hours a day delivering meals to seniors in Preble County, using your vehicle. You receive mileage reimbursement. You will have a dedicated route, and you can work, one, two, or more days per week, or just one day per month. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, except holidays.
Senior Companionship Program
This special service is a way we keep “homebound” clients connected with the outside world. Preble County Council on Aging volunteers call to check on an individual daily or as needed. This might be a call to just say “hello, how are you feeling today?” or the volunteer might remind the individual to take their medicine, etc. It’s a way of staying in touch with a person on a friendly and caring level. A volunteer might read a book or newspaper to the individual. Again, this is a way to keep a senior connected to the outside world and have some social time with another person.
If you would like to volunteer, or need more information call us at 937.456.4947 or 1.800.238.5146.
