Front Porch Employees Enjoy Volunteering at San Diego Senior Olympic Games

This summer, Front Porch began a two-year Silver Sponsorship of the San Diego Senior Olympic Games. Also known as the San Diego Senior Games, activities are Olympic-style events such as archery, badminton, bowling, volleyball, track and field, basketball, and tennis as well as non-traditional events like pickle ball, wheelchair dancing and more than 30 others.

The San Diego Senior Games Association is a community-based organization whose mission is to: "Encourage senior adults, aged 50 or older, to carry on vigorous lives by developing and maintaining high levels of physical activity and mental fitness through regular participation in sports, fitness, and health education activities."

As part of Front Porch’s sponsorship, many employees had the opportunity to volunteer at various events. Overwhelmingly, those who volunteered had a rewarding and inspiring experience.

Here is just a small sample of their experiences.
