Happy New Year! As you’ll read in this newsletter, we’ve taken time to celebrate our volunteers and all they’ve accomplished this past year, closing the book on 2021. Now it’s time to look forward to the year ahead and set our intentions for what we want to achieve in 2022!
We intend to expand our volunteer base by welcoming new seniors into service. Volunteering is good for everyone and that includes the volunteer. Through expansive outreach efforts, we want every senior in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough County to know Seniors in Service has a place where they can use their talents to improve the lives of others and live a purposeful life, connected to their community.
We intend to listen to those we serve to better understand their needs and look for new opportunities to provide support. Every senior deserves someone who cares, every child deserves a caring adult to help them succeed, and every Veteran deserves an advocate to support them in their time of need. At Seniors in Service, we strive to be an agency that works alongside our neighbors to make this possible.
We intend to say, “Yes” to new opportunities to partner with organizations who align with our mission and face each challenge that may come in 2022 with creative solutions so we never stop serving others. We know from experience that joining trusted partners in service and utilizing teamwork to solve problems can lead to unprecedented growth to be a vital resource for others.
Some intentions will lead to accomplishments we’re able to celebrate at the end of this year, and others will be intentions we continue to strive for in the future. We know for sure the passion of our volunteers, the dedication of our team, and the commitment of our community partners will lead Seniors in Service to be a trusted agency that improves the lives of seniors, children, families, and Veterans in 2022. Thank you for being a part of this journey. We’re happy you’re here!
