[ARCHIVED] COA Honors Its Volunteers

TPC ribbon cutting

In the past year, volunteers at the Council on Aging (COA) provided more than 7,500 hours of service to Wellesley's senior population. 

This week, the COA hosted a reception at the Tolles Parsons Center to thank the more than 330 people who help with day-to-day operations and special events at the Center.

These include programs such as weekly luncheons, grocery store trips and educational classes, as well as activities such as game and book clubs, crafting, and music groups.

The reception also highlighted groups including the Wellesley Hills Junior Women's Club, the Wellesley Service League and Wellesley Public Schools that partner with the COA to provide program volunteers. 

The Community Service Bears Group received special recognition. Since September 2018, this group has sewn more than 125 home-made Teddy Bears to distribute to local hospitals, shelters and the Wellesley Police Department to use in emergency situations. 

Since 2018, the number of people volunteering at the COA has more than doubled. 

Interested in volunteering? Email the COA or call 781-235-3961.
