OAKS IS A CARING COMMUNITY OF VOLUNTEERS RECRUITED TO HELP SENIORS LIVE INDEPENDENTLY IN HAPPY, HEALTHY, AND SAFE ENVIRONMENTS.
Out volunteers have stayed steadfast in aiding our members. Oaks has 25 active members and at this time 15 are being serviced in grocery shopping, food bank delivering, financial help in filing and guiding bill paying, personal shopping, paying for cleaning service(we not able to go into the homes due to pandemic), and doing everything we can to create socialization and comfort.
Oaks wants to sustain and continue the scholarship program to help those who would otherwise not be able to continue services or to join.
The Partner funds would enable increased services to our members as to paid cleaning services, creating fun socialization as to tea parties including gift bags delivered before and then the actual party on Zoom. Photos of people wearing different hats or outfits and spread fun expression through emails and mail. Mailings to our members are very important since many do not have computers, and creating positive happy sayings for the days of the month is another to stay in touch.
Reimbursement of mileage to our volunteers is a way of thanks to the core of OAKS. and would be possible. Our organization is 501(c)(3) certified.
Our creativity is kicking into gear and the partnership would fund the FUN, and SOCIALIZATION.
Thank You COOP for all you do for our communities and it is a JOY to see your interaction with so many worthy services.
