More than 650 senior citizens were honored by the city of Phoenix Human Services Department at a luncheon Dec. 8 for volunteering at least 40 hours each in the past year at his or her senior centers.

This year, 832 volunteers logged 160,300 hours at the city's 15 Human Services Department senior centers, equaling $3,424,000 in services. Through the city's senior programs, volunteers provide support services for older adults such as greeting participants, serving meals, assisting office staff, facilitating activities and planning trips.

The city's senior centers provide people 60 years and older, and adults with disabilities, with services, including nutrition programs; congregate meals; home-delivered meals; educational opportunities; recreation and social activities; information, referral and advocacy; and transportation. A calendar of events is available at each center.

The luncheon, which included entertainment, was hosted by the city's Human Services Department and funded through private donations.

For more information about the city's senior programs, call (602) 262-7379 or visit phoenix.gov/seniorservices.
