On September 12, volunteers will go out into the communities to pay tribute and celebrate senior citizens through companionship. The goal is to work to reduce negative outcomes such as depression and senior loneliness. According to Hayes, Our motto is to Keep the Fire Burning in our caregivers and the hearts of our seniors. Hayes also mentioned, We want the caregivers to forever love what they do when caring for our seniors and we want seniors to live a purposeful, engaging, prosperous life for the rest of their life. Not only do caregivers play an important role in providing companionship to our seniors, but volunteers can also gain a rewarding feeling when taking time to be with a senior.
