State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village, Far Rockaway) held a Senior Job and Resource Fair on August 29, 2017 at the Rochdale Village Community Center. Recognizing that the best things come with age including age and responsibility, Sanders sought to match those ages 55 and older with employment opportunities.

Some seniors were seeking extra income to make ends meet, while others wanted a little extra financial security, and then there were those who were seeking to make better use of their time and feel productive. Whatever the case, there was a wide array of companies on site to suit their needs. 

"It is important that we as a community recognize our seniors and show our unwavering commitment to them, Sanders said. "There is no one else in the community hosting events like this one and I felt it was time that we meet this need. There are some seniors who want to work or need to work and we should be helping them."

The companies / agencies participating in the fair included: the Council for Airport Opportunities, NYC Human Resources Administration, Cocoon, Walgreens, Quality Homecare,  NYC Department for the Aging, the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center, TrueCare, Queens Center for Progress, Healthcare Education Project, America Works of NY Inc., Halfway Tree Wealth Solutions, Tri-Med Homecare Services, and Combined Insurance, Gateway Sports and Pools.

Senator Sanders would like to thank the Rochdale Village Management and Board of Directors, particularly Jean Castro, and Rochdale Village Senior Committee for helping to facilitate this event.
