We are so lucky to have hosted 25 volunteers from Alpha Gamma Delta- Gamma Phi on August 14, 2017. In our kitchen, AGD volunteers packaged 400 meals and packed 90 bags of fruits and vegetables. In our Adult Day Health Center, AGD volunteers played Uno, did puzzles and arts and crafts, and danced with 29 seniors. In Northside Senior Center, AGD volunteers played Triominoes, card games, and did Zumba. Our seniors truly had an amazing day with Alpha Gamma Delta- Gamma Phi chapter.
With 100 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, Atlanta’s senior population is rapidly expanding and is expected to increase 65.8% by 2030. Additionally, Fulton County has the highest percentage of seniors living in poverty (12%), living alone (nearly 50%), and having difficulty leaving the home (25%) when compared to the rest of the region (Atlanta Regional Commission, 2012).
