City of Upper Arlington - Founded on Tradition, Focused on the Future

UA Commission on Aging “Senior Service Saturdays”

Posted on 2017-07-21 to City Manager's Blog

For several years, the Upper Arlington Community Foundation has coordinated the Senior Service Saturdays program, connecting eager volunteers with area seniors who can use a little extra help with small projects around their homes. From first-hand experience with my son, I can tell you that this is one of the most rewarding ways to give back to your community.
