COA Volunteers: Our Shining Stars
Can you believe April is just around the corner? It’s a special time for us at the COA since it is National Volunteer Month. This is a time where we let our volunteers know just how much we appreciate them. Our volunteers make it possible for the COA to offer them many wonderful programs and services that we do. If you would like to volunteer in your community and help brighten the lives of seniors, we would love to have you join our organization. For information on how you can help, call our Marketing Manager, Ruth Mancina at (269) 279-8083.
