Make a Difference Day - Create a Wreath for a Senior

Every year on the fourth Saturday in October, volunteerism is celebrated by individuals, friends, and families when they join together for Make A Difference Day. This year Make A Difference Day falls on October 24th.
Families, friends, and individuals are welcome to order a wreath kit to help us reach seniors who are self-quarantining and may feel disconnected from others. This small action will have such a big impact! Senior Services of Alexandria's Friendly Visitor Program will help distribute these wreaths. The wreaths are a small act of kindness to let them know that they are being thought of and help connect to others while they are at home.
Express interest below and the Volunteer Manager will be in touch to schedule a time slot (1hr 30min) between the times of 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM and send information on how to finish registration. Please register by October 16th 5:00 PM. The best part of coming to us is that the mess is not at home! The small fee will include all materials to have some fun, create art, and help a senior. Minors 6-12 are welcome to participate with parent/guardian. 13+ are welcome.

If you cannot volunteer in person, you have the opportunity to purchase a wreath kit and make it at home! Click HERE for more details.
