Volunteers in the Seniors Add Valuable Experience Program completed over 7,00 hours in the last year to Danbury. The United Way of Western Connecticut says the service is valued at more than $205,000 to Danbury.
47 seniors volunteered at 23 City departments and nonprofit agencies.
SAVE is administered by the United Way and is responsible for interviewing participants and matching them to local volunteer opportunities. SAVE has provided financially-qualified Danbury homeowners age 65 and older an opportunity to receive real estate tax relief through volunteer service since 2008.
Each volunteer must complete 100 hours of service over the course of the fiscal year, although many serve more than that amount.
