You can help!
Research shows that adults over 50 who volunteer have lower rates of depression and mortality and greater functional ability than those who do not volunteer. And as a CATCH volunteer, you are not only helping promote healthy habits for kids but also gaining that experience for yourself! Being involved in the CATCH program also provides the opportunity to experience the rewards of meaningful community service.
CATCH volunteers have fun as they promote healthy habits for kids and for themselves. To find out about volunteer opportunities with CATCH Healthy Habits in New York City, contact Cherise Sherriffe at 347-275-9042, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
