Happy Helpers Re-cap

This school year we started a grand experiment, host a playdate with stories, songs, and service at an assisted living facility every week and see what happens. Remember that announcement? Let's look at how it's gone so far. 

September theme: Fall

We made place mats and centerpieces for Meals on Wheels.

October themes: Kindness, Cats, Dogs, Halloween

We painted kindness rocks, made dog & cat toys for the Anti-Cruelty Society, and celebrated Halloween with the residents.

We decorated pillowcases for soldiers, made illuminated turkey jars for Sacred Heart Medical Center, took home Thankful Turkeys, and started Christmas cards for the Eugene Mission.

March themes: Education and Spring

We finished the kindergarten graduation awards for children in Haiti and made bird feeders to take home. We also made flowers for the memory care residents at Waterford Grand and delivered them during the March of the Munchkins on the first day of Spring.

So how is it going? Splendidly! The smiling faces of both young and old are evidence of that, plus we've helped so many other great organizations locally and globally and have discovered just how big a difference we all can make for good.
