LOEL offers something for everyone, from social programs to a nutritious lunch program. LOEL is a community gathering site where Seniors can participate in a variety of activities such as Exercise, Bingo, Line Dancing, making crafts, or simply playing a game of cards with their friends.
More than 30 years ago, one man took it upon himself to set up an endowment for LOEL to ensure Seniors have affordable housing and daily nutritious meals. We’ve taken his vision one step further. We provide programs, activities, and services for the Seniors in our community. Without Volunteers, this would be impossible. LOEL brings people together from all walks of life with the common goal of staying active and social. There’s a place for you at LOEL. Join us today!
Each Volunteer has a story to tell. Your Volunteer role could be as valuable and rewarding as theirs. Volunteering for LOEL means you have an opportunity to help many seniors in their daily lives and fulfill your own.
