Missoula aging services took a break from helping the city's seniors to throw a party for the volunteers that make their work possible

NBC Montana?s very own Heidi Meili hosted the event, called the "Young at Heart" volunteer celebration.

"In Missoula, we're so lucky to have so many wonderful community programs,? said Meili. ?This is one of the really strong ones."

Last year the non-profit's volunteers put in more than 30,000 hours to deliver more than 83,000 meals for their Meals-On-Wheels program.

Volunteer Coordinator Megan Hill says it?s inspiring to see so many volunteers, many of whom are seniors themselves, put in so many hours helping others.

"It's amazing,? said Hill. ?It makes you aware that there's so much life to live, and that we all can continue to give, and that aging is not something that stops us."

Hill says Missoula Aging Services is always looking for more volunteers. For more information, click here.
