Retirement is an active phase of life in which many seniors finally have the time to focus on causes and interests previously put on hold for careers or family obligations. With renewed time and energy, along with a vast array of life experience and professional knowledge, senior volunteers benefit organizations of every kind. And with so many organizations and nonprofits in need of help, there’s no shortage of opportunities for those willing to donate their time and efforts. Willow Valley Communities actively supports Residents’ volunteer efforts and believes volunteering supports a Life Lived Forward.
