SOS HISTORY

SOS is a fairly young organization having its beginnings in 2007 when our founder,  Leigh Ann Vinciguerra,  became aware of an urgent need to connect Plumsted seniors with available services.  She approached then Mayor Ron Dancer who agreed and together they took steps to address the need by contacting people they knew who might be interested in helping and by putting out the call for volunteers in the New Egypt Press.  The group, originally named Senior Outreach Search, had small beginnings; a handful of people meeting in Leigh Ann’s living room.  As the group grew, office space and equipment was provided by the township in the Welcome Center in New Egypt and community meetings were held there as well as in local churches and Jensen’s Community Clubhouse.  When the Community Room was completed on the lower level of Plumsted’s  Municipal Building, SOS got a permanent home there.  With the help of Plumsted Township and our volunteers,  SOS has made great strides in its short history by expanding its membership becoming incorporated as a 501(c)3 charitable not for profit organization, enabling us to provide even more assistance and socialization to our seniors.

 

 

 

VOLUNTEER OPORTUNITIES

You do not need to be a senior to be a senior volunteer!  Perhaps you have a special talent or an idea for a new service or activity.  If you would like to offer some of your time, please contact the SOS office.  All volunteers are appointed by the Plumsted Township committee.
