Senior, Veterans, & Special Needs Day Gallery
A great way to honor our valued citizens!
A group of at least 35 fun-loving, able-bodied people who can push wheelchairs are needed to greet over 700 seniors, veterans, and special needs citizens from assisted living facilities throughout the Willamette Valley on this one-day event.
Helpers assist with unloading visitors from vans and accompany or push visitors in wheelchairs through the venue. Those with the “gift of gab” who enjoy talking to older folks are especially welcomed. Our goal is to make every visitor feel special—for many this is the highlight of their Christmas season.
Guests enjoy a visit with Santa at the end of the tour and receive a small gift and packaged candy. Anyone wishing to donate items or funds to assist in providing small gifts please contact us.
Helpers are equipped with an identification badge and flashlight. Tours run from 10 am to 3 pm but helpers can sign up for a morning or afternoon shift. A potluck luncheon allows helpers to gather and socialize. Wear your smile and dress warmly as the venue is not heated. For more information contact the Senior Day Coordinator.
It is important for all senior tour volunteers to be familiar with the following:
- Pre-registration and scheduling required to participate. On arrival check in at the sign-in table to receive your name badge before participating.
- Senior, Veterans, & Special Needs Citizens Volunteer Guidelines
- View the Fire extinguisher training video:

Groups from businesses or organization are welcome! Volunteering as a group is a great way to build teams while volunteering to assist the honored citizens of our local community.
