Senior Citizens, Inc. celebrates Summer Angels student volunteers

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

Senior Citizens, Inc. is holding a reception today to recognize the hard work of their "Summer Angels" during summer break. The Summer Angels program of Senior Citizens, Inc. matches middle-grade students with senior citizens at various levels of need and in a variety of living situations.  Under adult supervision, participating students provide more than 1,000 hours of assistance.  The program meets the needs of the seniors and provides a life-changing experience for the kids. 

This summer, a total of 22 students have done yard work for Ardsley Park residents, delivered meals for Meals on Wheels recipients, played games and crafts with Ruth Byck Adult Daytime Care clients, and taught seniors how to play the Wii at our neighborhood activity centers – just to name a few. In a nutshell, they help in carrying out the mission of Senior Citizens, Inc. – to help people age successfully.

The students will be presented with a signed, commemorative letter by Mayor Edna Jackson honoring their volunteer efforts this summer.
