Social Club at TRC Senior Village (formerly Senior Diners Club)

Volunteers partner with TRC Senior Village to cook a healthy meal and play a challenging and engaging game in order to decrease senior isolation, foster a sense of community, and fight dementia. Volunteers and seniors will have opportunities to build relationships with each other through conversations and over a community meal. Meal ideas will be suggested by seniors and prepared by both seniors and volunteers. Chicago Cares’ volunteer projects are opportunities to connect with our neighbors, challenge our assumptions, change how we think and feel about our city, and inspire action – all while making a tangible, positive impact through service.
