Volunteers Wanted: You Can Help Louisville Seniors Celebrate the Holidays

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The holidays aren’t always the brightest time of year for Louisville seniors. That’s why community centers like that in the Beechmont neighborhood are so important.

“It’s really fun. It’s like brothers and sisters,” explains Al Huber. He’s a volunteer at the Beechmont Community Center.

Huber is a popular guy. Not only does the 80-something frequent the center every week, he’s a long-time volunteer there.

“It’s a fun group. We are here plus we go to Churchill Downs and look at that and next year we are planning to go someplace different every month.”

The center recently hosted its Senior Christmas Party and luncheon. Huber says the holidays is a fine time to get out the word, new volunteers are always sought and welcomed.

“And if you’re young and you want to volunteer come here and volunteer. It’s a fun place. There are kids. There are adults, it’s really a neat place,” Huber said.
