Volunteers in the Seniors Add Valuable Experience Program have completed 8,500 hours in the last year. The service to the city of Danbury was valued at more than $211,000. 48 seniors volunteered at 19 City departments and nonprofit agencies through SAVE. The program, created in 2008, provides financially-qualified Danbury homeowners age 65 and older an opportunity to receive real estate tax relief through volunteer service at organizations and agencies throughout the city. Each volunteer must complete 100 hours of service over the course of the fiscal year.
