Volunteering in Groups
Each October ADRC teams up with the Volunteer Center for Make a Difference Day. Your group can help seniors and adults with disabilities maintain their homes by getting the outside of their homes ready for winter.
Maintaining a home is very expensive and labor intensive. Living on a fixed income can make this impossible. You’ll be helping them continue to live in the homes they love.
The Volunteer Center recruits and coordinates volunteer groups and ADRC gathers the wishes.
Ways to get involved from home:
Decorate meal bags
Want a way to put a guaranteed smile on someone’s face? Decorate some meal bags!
We serve over 500 meal recipients each day and have had an overwhelming response that the decorated meal bags brighten their day even more. Many
customers even keep the bags to share with others or hang in their homes.
Bag Decorating Guidelines:
- Get creative! The more time and creativity that go into a bag, the more joy it brings.
- No stick-on decorations (glitter, sequins, etc) that may fall into the food.
- No religious messages/images out of respect for customers with different beliefs.
- Colored pencils and markers work best.
- Theme/Decoration Ideas – Holidays, seasonal, Happy Birthday, inspirational quotes, feel-good messaging, fun facts, jokes/riddles, games, artwork, etc.
Ready to decorate?!
Place an order for bags by calling the Nutrition Program at (920) 448-4312.
Once bags are ready, they can be picked up and dropped off anytime Mon – Fri from 8a – 4:30p.
