Hundreds of volunteers were honored recently for the time and services they provided in the past year at the city’s 15 Human Services Department senior centers.

This year, 711 volunteers logged 121,949 hours, equaling $2,699,945 worth of 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 also celebrated the senior centers involvement in the FitPHX program. More than 600 seniors completed more than 2,100 hours of health and fitness-based activities implemented to increase nutrition and health awareness, physical activity and mental fitness.

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 was hosted by the city’s Human Services Department funded through private donations. For more information about the city’s senior programs, call (602) 262-7379 or visit
