Display at the Bargain Corner at the Senior Center

Good deeds keep us young …that’s the word from researchers at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana in an article from the First for Women magazine shared by the Senior Center.

They compared the health of adults who volunteered just a few times a year with those who never volunteered.

The finding: volunteers had 15 percent lower levels of C-reactive protein, an inflammation marker that rises with age and is linked to rheumatoid arthritis and cardiovascular disease.

Study author Seoyoun Kim credits volunteers’ younger biological profiles to the physical activity, sense of purpose and social interaction that come from giving back, all of which have been shown to ease inflammation causing stress.

The Senior Center is in need of volunteers for these positions:

  • Karaoke/Bingo needs licensed liquor Servers.  
  • Karaoke/Bingo needs Kitchen Service Assistance.  
  • Front Desk Receptionists 
  • Bargain Corner Thrift Shop
  • Kitchen Helpers Needed
  • Knitters and Crocheters
