Seniors and organizations are united by volunteering

In April local seniors and organizations from Gulbene district gathered to share stories about volunteering in local community. During the meeting representatives from kindergarten, Gulbene Primary School, NGO „Krustalīces mantojums” and history and art museum shared their experience – how it is to host a volunteer. These were success stories that will definitely continue.

For example, in Gulbene Primary School seniors led the sport lessons, together with kids prepared fruit salads, shared skills in card making. NGO „Krustalīces mantojums” organized neighborhood cleanup. But representatives from kindergarten mentioned that they would like to have volunteers with gardening skills.

They were pleasing, affectionate and positive moments. Kids were very responsive and willing to get involved.
