The Great Neck Social Center, a nonprofit organization supported by grants from the federal government, state and Town of North Hempstead, along with contributions from generous community members, is seeking volunteers for some of its free programs.
On Thursday afternoons, 25 with-it seniors meet at the Great Neck Social Center to discuss what our leaders should be and could be doing better at World in Depth. The group is looking for a gifted moderator, an experienced guy or gal who would like to lead the group one Thursday a month from 2 to 3:15 p.m. If you are interested in this exciting experience, call the center at 516-487-0025 and ask for Ann.
If you have extra yarn or enjoy knitting, consider donating your supplies or time to the winter rescue knitters, who knit and crochet wool and other warming fabrics for children and adults in various situations in the Town of North Hempstead. The group is quite active and the need for wool is intense as the colder weather approaches. Knitters are wanted and welcome.
Are you caring for a person with Alzheimer’s? There’s room for many more devoted caregivers in the center’s Tuesday program, which offers a great deal of comfort to participants sharing the same situation, who benefit from the advice and support of the gifted professional guiding the group.
For more information, call 516-487-0025 or visit the Great Neck Social Center at 80 Grace Ave.
