Retirement is merely a new phase in your life – not the end of your active lifestyle. Even after you move into over 55 communities in Colorado, there are plenty ways of staying active and being helpful, at the same time.
For many people, volunteer work adds meaning to their life and gives them a sense of fulfillment. Here are some of the best volunteering activities for active people at over 55 communities in Colorado:
- Cooking and Distributing Food for the Needy
Being hungry is one of the worst feelings – and millions are never sure when their next meal will be. Many charities set up programs for cooking, collecting and distributing food. A few hours of your time and effort every week or month will help ensure that many children and adults won’t go to bed on an empty stomach.
Your decades of experience in your field of work are still useful and meaningful. Many active people over 55 take up online or in-person tutoring for students who cannot afford paid tutoring programs. This is a great way of keeping your mind active and helping disadvantaged people further their education and improve their life.
- Collecting and Distributing Clothes
Clothes are just as necessary as food for the poor. Every year, thousands of items of clothing are donated to charity. You can volunteer to help charities with sorting and distributing these donations.
