Senior residents at Waterside Landing gave back to the community, painting blocks to be given to local children.

A group Heart2Heart volunteers gave their assistance and support to residents during the special event at the care center in Margate, Florida on Nov. 14. The blocks will be distributed to foster children through the South Florida nonprofit 4Kids, which supports local foster children.

Becoming a Heart2Heart volunteer means that you are dedicated to serving the aging community. It means you want to connect in a meaningful way to a specific individual or to several people. It means you are committed to a consistent amount of time per month – whether that’s several hours a week or just a few hours per month.

Heart2Heart volunteers must be background checked and trained. Our training can be completed from your home on your computer or device, through the online Volunteer Portal. We run fingerprints in our office in Fort Lauderdale, and you can schedule an appointment with us after you finish the training.
