Senior Center Happenings

The Currituck County Senior Centers; Barco, Knotts Island and Powell’s Point are places designed to give Senior Adults in Currituck the opportunity to meet other seniors, receive services geared towards seniors and participate in activities that will affirm their dignity and self-worth.

With that in mind each month the staff produces a newsletter to inform citizens of available programs for that month. Please take the time to read what the Senior Centers are doing this month.

When we all work together the senior centers are an “enjoyable and a happy place” for EVERYONE!

Help Wanted…
Home Delivered Meals Volunteers Needed

A Home Delivered Meals Volunteer is the ONLY reason we are able to serve Currituck County home bound seniors with a hot meal Monday through Friday every week. *Due to COVID, we are currently delivering only Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Volunteers play a key role in providing seniors not only with a meal, but offer much needed socialization and smiles!  You may be the ONLY person that they see all day!  Volunteer schedules are flexible to meet our volunteers’ needs.  The average route requires 1 hour of your time and you can volunteer as little or as often as you want.  There are currently 10 routes throughout Currituck County serving approximately 65 Home Bound Seniors.

Contact one of our senior centers if you would like to volunteer.
