Please Join us every Monday at the Doris Krauss Senior Center. The center is open from 10 am to 2 pm. A hot meal is served at 12 noon that is prepared by our volunteer Chef Robert and other volunteer assistants. Special meals are prepared to commemorate holidays and special occasions.
Each Monday we have up to 60 seniors that gather to enjoy each other and participate in our activities. Our activities include singing, dance, exercise, water color instruction and jewelry making classes all of which are free of charge. Our activities begin at 10:30 am. We welcome suggestions for other activities, or, if you would like to lead an activity, your thoughts would be welcome and we would do our best to incorporate them into our programs.
We have a nurse that comes to the Doris Krauss Senior Center every other Monday to take blood pressure and answer non-critical health concern questions. Twice a month we have a movement instructor along with chair massages. We also offer in-service opportunities for those that would like further information regarding San Francisco services or medical topics of interest to seniors.
Old First Presbyterian Church, which sponsors the Doris Krauss Senior Center, offers handicapped-access with a elevator for those using walkers or wheel chairs. We welcome all interested seniors to participate in our programs. We are dedicated to creating a safe environment where seniors can gather weekly to socialize, exercise and enjoy a home cooked meal surrounded by friendly faces.
Volunteers are also always needed and welcome to assist with programs including food preparation, serving, clean-up or simply socializing with the seniors. The senior center is always in need of in-kind donations. Baked goods for our lunch are always welcome as are any other food items that would benefit our seniors.
If you would like additional information regarding our senior center whether as a senior or as a volunteer. Please call Gina Withers, the senior center director, at 415-776-5552, extension 316.
