Note for state farm retirees

Considering volunteering at ARC?

​Purpose and Vision:  

Volunteers help us fulfill our mission of providing seniors in our community a friendly, supportive atmosphere in which to stay active, to socialize, and to receive the health support and assistance services they need to have a successful aging experience.

Staff will help you find the volunteer opportunity that fits your interests and schedule.  Ongoing volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to: 

  •  East Desk Member Service Representative

    Duties: Answering ARC member phone calls and registering members for programs on GymMaster. Must have computer skills. Other tasks may be assigned.

  • Front Greeter

    Duties: Greeting members, directing members to proper rooms, attendance tally, answering member questions, and tours

  • Library Attendants: Keep the shelves orderly and process donations.  This is more of a sharing library than a check out library.  No need to bring books back!
  • Gardening: Assist with watering plants and maintaining landscape areas.
  • Teach a class or lead a program/activity
  • Assist with popcorn on movie days 

For more information, please contact Jeanne Whitehill at or by phone at 309-888-9099 or fill out the form below.  Once your application is received, staff will contact you for an interview.

Volunteer Policy: If a volunteer will need to miss a scheduled shift, he or she must notify Jeanne Whitehill, one week in advance.  Emergencies will be handled as the need arises.
