norVOLution is the volunteer program serving Norwood Life Society, a 501c(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the independence and well-being of older adults. Building on 125 years of service to seniors, norVOLution's commitment is to serve not only the seniors of our community but to enhance the lives of our volunteers, particularly mature adults, and be of service to the broader community. We are proud to have over 400 individuals serving throughout the year.
Help with Bingo! Every Thursday at 3 pm and Saturday at 2 pm, norVOLution staffs volunteers to join the fun and help our senior residents enjoy one of their favorite games – Bingo! Volunteers are asked to arrive ½ hour prior to Bingo and stay ½ hour after.
Help with Bowling! Norwood Crossing residents participate in bowling every Thursday at 10:00 AM in the Norwegian Heritage Room. Volunteers are needed for two hours once a week to help seniors to and from their residences to bowling. Volunteers assist in setting up and putting away bowling balls and pins and help the seniors have a good time. During the game they help residents who have physical and mental challenges to play the game. Volunteers help keep score, provide physical assistance and cheer the bowlers on.
Impact: Enriching the lives of our residents: Our residents are most appreciative of volunteers who help in this capacity and it is a nice time to socialize and spend time with them. Many volunteers and residents form friendships which enhance the lives of both.
