This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time to help us out.

Featured Activity

Can you spare a few hours a day? How about a week? The Highland Senior Center Nutrition Program is looking for volunteers to help out in the kitchen. Helpers wont be cooking. The food is all cooked off site. We are looking for people to help set up the dining room, serve the food, and then clean up.

It only takes a few hours a day. You can volunteer one day a week, or several days. If we could get several people to help out it would lighten the load even more. So if you are willing to help serve your fellow seniors, or if you have some questions, please see Timi or Penny.
