RESPONSE TO COVID-19

At A Little Help, we are doing everything possible to support our older members as they stay safe at home. Many of our activities and in-person events have been modified or changed.

 

SOCIAL AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS

A Little Help hosts a variety of social and fundraising events in each of our Locations to connect neighbors and strengthen communities. Current activities are shown on our monthly calendars and newsletters.

 

  • A Little Soirée: Our biggest celebration of the year in Metro Denver includes a silent auction, live music, and an open bar to raise funds to further A Little Help’s mission.

  • A Little Fest: Launched in Fall 2019, A Little Fest is Northern Colorado's annual fundraising event, featuring a silent auction, games, and delicious food and drinks to support our mission.

  • Connections and Cocktails: Because we couldn't gather in-person in 2020, we hosted a virtual fundraiser to support all our Little Locations.

  • Annual Holiday Party & Colorado Gives Day Celebration: The annual Holiday Party provides a great opportunity for community members to connect and celebrate the holiday season together, during our largest online fundraiser of the year. Colorado Gives Day is a 24-hour initiative encouraging Coloradans to "give where we live" to help raise money for local nonprofits. This day of giving is crucial to continuing and furthering A Little Help’s mission. 

  • Service Saturdays!: Service Saturdays! are twice-yearly events providing volunteer assistance for older adults with various home maintenance jobs, such as cleaning, organizing, raking, and other household tasks. Service Saturdays! provide many opportunities for intergenerational neighborly connection. A Little Help also hosts A Little Community Days as smaller service days for groups between our larger Service Saturday! events.

  • Little Kindness Days: In lieu of Service Saturdays! in 2020, we created Little Kindness Days to serve our older neighbors' seasonal yard chore needs in pods of 5 to mitigate risk. Rather than gathering hundreds of neighbors for coffee and donuts to kick off the service days and dispatch volunteers to homes, we share virtual instructions and visit pods with refreshments safely.

  • Tough Talks: We host expert speakers and panels on some of life’s tough, but important topics. Tough Talks are designed to provide a forum to discuss and learn more about difficult subjects. A Little Help offers a different installment of this series every few months and strives to feature relevant and thought-provoking topics with knowledgeable speakers.

  • Summer Picnics & MixersA Little Help hosts mixers and picnics throughout the year, where members and volunteers can come together to enjoy a meal and get to know each other.
