People helping people during the coronavirus crisis. The Naples Senior Center is closing Wednesday, but officials there say they won’t let their seniors down.
Lots of them depend on the center to socialize and even to eat. One volunteer is helping them find hope in moments of darkness.
”These volunteers are going way above their normal responsibilities to put themselves at the forefront of helping our seniors,” said the center’s CEO, Dr. Jaclynn Faffer.
Alan Horowitz, 72, has volunteered at the Naples Senior Center for six years.
“I’m a very lucky man and that’s why I volunteer,” he says.
A duty even closer to his heart now that concerns over the coronavirus have forced the center to close their doors.
