Senior Services

Volunteering

Senior Services  

Volunteer Driver Program : Senior Services is looking for compassionate volunteers to help with the Volunteer Driver Program.  Many seniors in our community are unable to drive themselves to needed appointments and many do not have family members to assist them.  The Volunteer Driver program provides trips to the grocery store, bank, post office, regular doctors appointments, etc.  Schedules are set to accommodate the volunteer's availability and trips typically last between 2 -3 hours.  If you are interested in volunteering for this program please contact Joy at 770-345-1224 or email jnmceuen@cherokeega.com

Adopt-A-Senior Program: Each December our “elves” contact seniors in our area to determine essential items seniors may need.  Simple requests of a gown, socks, a nice throw, etc…are the norm. Seniors are then matched up with volunteers who generously purchase the items requested. Most volunteers don’t just stop at the requested items. We have some very generous and talented individuals in our community who prepare elaborate baskets of gifts, goodies and personal items which are then delivered by our MOW’s drivers to the seniors. This program has been extremely popular and one that many local organizations lend a hand to. Look for more information on this program in the local media as the holidays approach aomicham@cherokeega.com

Donations: Donations are always needed and welcome. Consider making a gift to Cherokee County Senior Services to support all crucial programs. We are always in need of rollators, adult pull ups, toilet paper and paper towels. We could not complete our mission without the help of caring people, whose contributions directly support our effort to help those in need. Your generous contribution improves the quality of life of our county’s seniors, and strengthens our community as a whole. Call Joy at 770-345-1224 or email jnmceuen@cherokeega.com  NOTE:  We are no longer accepting clothing or food donations.

CHEROKEE COUNTY VOLUNTEER AGING COUNCIL (VAC) a 501( c ) (3), nonprofit.

www.VAC-cherokeega.org

All donations are tax deductible. The VAC is a nonprofit volunteer based organization whose mission is to encourage volunteerism, help plan and develop fundraising activities to benefit all of Cherokee County Senior Services programs and to be ambassadors to the community by bringing awareness of programs and events that benefit Senior Services, their clients and the community.

Programs supported by the VAC are:

These are just a few of the programs we have in place to assist the frail and homebound seniors in Cherokee County. If you would like to join this group there are a few things you should know. Number one it will not take much of you free time. We understand that today’s volunteers are a diverse group. Many are still raising families and have full-time jobs. Some are active on with other charities; the VAC is very accommodating and will not require much of your free time. The VAC meets just one morning per month for approximately one hour. We hold several fundraisers during the year. With the help and commitment of a strong volunteer base working together, the commitment for this is minimal as well. Please consider joining the VAC. If you need additional information please contact 678-269-6677.
