Every year we serve over 25,000 senior lunches from our Center as part of our Senior Nutrition Program. Our home delivered meal program provides meals to over 100 homebound seniors and our in-house lunches provide a meal and engagement opportunities for many more. We could not meet the needs of so many seniors, without the thousands of hours our volunteers donate to the Center each year.
If you would like to volunteer in the kitchen packaging meals, Monday through Friday, from 9 to 11 am, or deliver a hot meal and a smile to a homebound senior, please let us know. Call or stop by the office and we’ll answer any questions you have.
You can download our volunteer application.

Chelsea Community Senior Services (C2S2) helps local seniors stay living independently and connected to their community. The program provides area seniors access to needed services using volunteers or through referrals to vetted and discounted service providers. We are seeking volunteer and local businesses to provide services such as transportation, friendly visits, basic home maintenance, check-in calls, light gardening or yard work, assistance with electronics, and pet care.
When you visit the Senior Center, it’s important to us that you are greeted warmly by someone who can help get you what you need. Who better for that than members of the Senior Center? Each day we are fortunate to have 2 volunteers staff our front desk (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) who assist us with light office work. If you are interested in volunteering to work at our front desk, please stop by the office or you can download an application here.
The Trinh Pifer Intergenerational Garden needs volunteers of all ages to help. Even just a half-hour a week makes a difference. There is a lot that goes into a vibrant community garden and you don't have to be a gardener, or a senior, to help.
The Intergenerational Garden is a place for people of all ages to learn about gardening, support senior nutrition, and enjoy each other's company. While seniors are the backbone of garden volunteering, we also welcome youth groups and families with children. This is a great opportunity for youth group service projects or for high-schoolers seeking experience for resumes and college applications. If you are an experienced organic gardener, consider sharing your knowledge on how to make the garden more productive and beautiful!
