Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) is seeking volunteers who have a passion for giving back to the community as well as the skills, knowledge and temperament (empathy, compassion and patience) to volunteer in the meal site program. Volunteers are essential to the success of MVES, helping older adults and adults with disabilities live independently. MVES is specifically looking for volunteers to assist at the following sites: the Medford Senior Center, 630 Salem St. in Malden, 910 Main St. in Melrose, the Revere Senior Center and the Malden Council on Aging. Meal site volunteers work as part of a team that contributes to the safe independence of elders living in the community by helping them access nutritious and balanced food as well as opportunities for socialization. They set tables and assist with some food prep, serving and cleanup, as well as ensure that visitors find a warm and friendly atmosphere at any of Mystic Valley Elder Services’ sites.
