Get Involved

Help Us Stay Connected to Older Adults

Volunteer to distribute meals and help Sixty and Better maintain a vital lifeline to older adults who would normally attend their neighborhood Activity Center.


Sixty and Better has provided a place for older adults to have fun, be well, and stay connected since 1967. That has been challenged with the Coronavirus Pandemic, as all older adults are asked to stay home and limit their exposure to others. 

Meals that you will distribute meet at least one-third of the recommended daily nutrition intake.

Currently, deliveries are for Participants of Sixty and Better Activity Centers.

1) Sign Up to Volunteer
