Starenki was born as a volunteer project – a project by caring people who just wanted to do something to help the elderly in need. More than 7 years have passed since then and now we call ourselves the volunteering Foundation, because the essence has remained the same – we are a community of volunteers who help the lonely elderly in hardship. In our team we have a few employees and outsourced specialists, but most of the Starenki team are volunteers who do something for Starenki on top of their jobs and enjoy it.
The main areas of volunteer assistance in Starenki are:
- participation in packing and delivery of food and hygienic packages to our elderly wards – they are always very happy to see us and our visit for them is often the biggest event of the month
- participation in tea party as a sponsor of sweets and/or a volunteer at the tea party itself, who communicates with older ladies and gentleman and helps with the entertainment program
- assistance with professional tasks of the fund (design, translations, working in individual projects)
- creative ambassadorship – holding creative events in favor of the wards of the foundation or to draw attention to the problems of the elderly.
