Dear Ms. LastName,

I am interested in opportunities that may be available to volunteer at the St. John Senior Center. I have experience working with senior citizens and would be thrilled to continue to do so in a volunteer capacity.

I volunteered as an aide at the Champlain Center and enjoyed being able to help senior citizens with arts and crafts. In this position, I assisted with projects and accompanied field trips to local musical events and museums.

If the St. John Center has a need for a dedicated volunteer, I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to assist.My schedule is flexible, and I would be available to volunteer at your convenience.

I hope to schedule an interview at a mutually convenient time. I look forward to speaking with you.

Thank you for your consideration.
