Senior Services of Alexandria (SSA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1968 that has as its mission, “to foster independence and self-sufficiency, enabling seniors within the City of Alexandria to age with dignity.” SSA offers a variety of services including Meals on Wheels, Groceries to Go, Friendly Visitor, Animals and DOT transportation programs. SSA presents educational programs through various events, a speaker series, and a monthly cable television production, Senior Living in Alexandria. We are looking for volunteers for the following three programs: Groceries to Go The Groceries to Go program needs volunteers to shop for and deliver groceries every Thursday morning for seniors who have mobility issues and have difficulty shopping for food. The time commitment is less than two hours a week. Join our grocery store volunteers by contacting Sandy Freedman at 703-836-4414, ext. 119. Meals on Wheels Senior Services of Alexandria provides Meals on Wheels to Alexandria's seniors 365 days a year. We are looking for volunteers to deliver meals in the City of Alexandria. The time commitment is about 90 minutes and training will be provided. If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer experience, please contact Senior Services of Alexandria at volunteer@seniorservicesalex.org or call 703-836-4414, ext 115. Friendly Visitor Program Are you interested in making a difference in someone's life? Senior Services of Alexandria is actively recruiting volunteers to participate in our Friendly Visitor Program. The goal of this program is to relieve loneliness and feeling of isolation experienced by many of Alexandria's seniors. Through planned weekly visits, volunteers bring friendship and community connections to seniors who are often restricted by their living facilities and/or may lack the local support of friends and family. If you would like to be part of our dynamic group of volunteers or would like more information, please contact Mary Giordano at 703-836-4414, ext. 120 or email at friendlyvisitor@seniorservicesalex.org.
