Volunteer Action for Aging (VAA) provides the following services and community service opportunities:
Homeless Hygiene Care Kit Event: Volunteers of all ages including seniors, Veterans, and young adults will gather to assemble homeless care kits.
Cell Phone Instruction: Assist seniors in understanding the basic or advanced functions of their cell phones or Smart phones; patient teachers who can work individually with seniors at a downtown Long Beach senior apartment building are needed.
ALL YEAR Friendly Visitor/Phone Friend Volunteer: On a weekly basis, volunteers provide either friendly visits or phone calls to matched clients. They offer emotional support, companionship and conversation to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Writing Letters for Troops Event: Clients and volunteers come together to write letters for active military and veterans. Letters are sent to Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to the military.
Please note: These activities are ONGOING.
