Volunteering

David is one of over 100 volunteers at Uniting AgeWell.  He started volunteering with the support of Creative Links, a Golden City Support Services program, which helps people to connect people to their interests in the community.

He first began volunteering on a Thursday in the laundry, but soon decided that this task wasn’t the best fit for his skills. As a well-known and loved artist with CreateAbility’s Performance Ensemble, David was naturally drawn to the weekly singing group.

Volunteer Manager Kerry says that when David first started he seemed very shy, but since he has been helping out with the singing group he has made lots of friends and accompanies the singing with his guitar.
