“…each Give 5 Class experience allows retirees to taste test a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, find a role that matches with our passions, interests and availability and to benefit the community in new and meaningful ways.
Not only that as part of the Give 5 Class retirees meet new people find comradery and friendship, learn more about the city and have fun!”
