Cherishing Our Elders

  • In-Person Group Projects
  • Remote/Virtual Projects

Youth groups, congregations, companies, schools or individuals can assist the seniors in our many programs by participating in a day-of-service. Groups can come together in-person or virtually to complete a volunteer activity, such as make goody bags, food bags, cards, crafts, or write letters. The Cherishing Our Elders program delivers items to our seniors throughout the year, so you can select any date and time that is best for your group. Learn more.
