The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for creative individuals to make "sensory" or "fidget" blankets and pillows that we can use as tools to calm and connect with our patients in varying stages of Alzheimer's disease. Please join us today. Your creative talents can provide positive, meaningful activities for people that are "lost" to everyday things that each of us currently take for granted. Each of these people were active, loving, engaged fathers, mothers...with careers, hobbies...until Alzheimer's took over their lives.
A sturdy square lap blanket with zippers, buttons, fabrics with different textures is a gift - something to do! - for one of our patients.
You create and bring the gifts to our Scottsdale office. We present them to our patients and let you know just how treasured they are.
Make a commitment today to craft and sew "for a purpose."
