Volunteer at Congregate City Senior Centers

Does your company organize volunteer opportunities? We need your help at the City’s Congregate Senior Centers! Volunteer with your co-workers to organize a game of bingo and serve lunch.

Love Notes Program

This program is currently suspended due to the volume of cards received during the pandemic. Join our Love Notes volunteer program to brighten a MOWC client’s day! Volunteers for the Love Notes program help create thousands of hand-made cards a month that are delivered along with meals.
