Tom volunteers at the Hayward Area Senior Center. Tom is a woodshop monitor and volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00am-3:00pm. Tom opens the woodshop, inspects the equipment for safety and ensures that participants have taken the safety course before participating. Tom observes participants to make sure they are using the equipment in a safe manor and are following proper procedures related to the woodshop. Due to safety issues, volunteering in the woodshop program entails much responsibility and is a job to be taken very seriously. In addition to the woodshop, Tom has volunteered in the nutrition program at the Hayward Area Senior Center. Tom helped prepare lunch at the last 2017 Thanksgiving Luncheon. This luncheon served approximately 150 seniors that enjoyed a traditional, hot turkey meal.
