Phoenix senior center volunteers thanked with party
PHOENIX -- Volunteers at Phoenix senior centers were thanked Wednesday with a party at the Arizona Grand Resort.
There was lots of dancing and food at Phoenix's 32nd annual party to thank those who volunteer at the city's 15 senior centers.
"We have well over 700 volunteers," said Phoenix Human Services Department Director Deanna Jonovich. "This year alone, they volunteered in excess of over 122,000 hours."
She said that amounts to over $2.5 million dollars in volunteer hours.
Jack Davis is one of the volunteers. He said he keeps busy at the senior center where he volunteers.
"We put on breakfasts, we help with the functions of the center and we organize the center's outdoor activities," he said.
Davis said Phoenix is doing a great job for seniors.
"They have made life enjoyable for some of those who would not have the quality of life that they enjoy now if it were not for the city of Phoenix Human Services Department," he said.
