Students give of their time to help seniors
Students from the National Honor Society volunteer their time once a month at the Alexandria Senior Center to assist seniors with their smartphones, iPads, computers and other technology. They come to the senior center at 3:30 on the days that the Midwest Educational Computer Association meets.
MECA is a computer club that has been meeting at the senior center for almost 30 years. It was created to help seniors learn computer basics.
If seniors wish to receive guidance from a student, reservations are requested so that students know how many to expect and for which devices. Call the senior center at (320) 762-2087 to make a reservation.
Generally, this opportunity is extended on the fourth Wednesday of each month, but due to the holidays, youth will be there at 3:30 on the second Wednesdays, Nov. 9 and Dec. 14.
