Celebrating 60 Years of Service

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community. Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change. National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled
throughout the week. 

North Shore Senior Center will be celebrating National Volunteer Week by hosting special activities for our volunteers, which will take place from April 25 — April 27 at the Center’s Northfield Campus.
