Volunteers

Welcome to the Shrewsbury Council On Aging Volunteer page. We are so glad you are either a current member of our volunteer staff or are considering joining us. We know how lucky we are to have such an amazing and dedicated group of volunteers. If it were not for these individuals we would not be able to offer the diverse range of programs, workshops and activities the Shrewsbury senior community has come to expect and enjoy nor would we be able to have the Senior Center run as smoothly as it does. These people are truly invaluable to us all.

Volunteer Coordinator


Stacey Lavely is the Volunteer Coordinator. Please contact her if you are interested in volunteering or if you are a current volunteer interested in additional hours or a new placement. She can be reached either by calling 508-841-8758 or email.
