We ask the general public, organizations, churches and businesses to donate money and merchandise for the purpose of giving gift bags to the residents at the home during a party.
In the gift bags we provide: skin lotion/female or shaving cream/male, a pair of socks and a puzzle book/male or stuffed toy/female. We also provide a piece of fruit, orange or banana, and a flower.
At the party we serve them food and drink and distribute gift bags to the residents at the party.
After the party, we deliver at least Holiday cards, and possibly gifts around the home to residents who cannot attend the party.
Ahead of the event, we are in need of overall event organization volunteers and obtaining commitments from people to fill event leadership positions.
We are endeavoring to recruit two different kinds of volunteers for Adopt-a-Senior:
- OVERALL EVENT ORGANIZATION volunteers – general organization support of all locations.
- EVENT LEADERSHIP volunteers – important volunteer functions at each location of events.
As we get closer to the event, about 5 weeks ahead of the events we will begin recruiting general volunteers to simply attend and help with executing the events.
SELECT WHICH MARKET, LOCATION AND TYPE OF VOLUNTEER POSITION(S) WHICH MAY BE OF INTEREST TO YOU.
