RESPONSE TO COVID-19 VIRUS
Every day more governors and mayors across American are asking - even requiring - citizens to stay in their homes. This has become the key role in addressing this emergency, and it's something we can all do. At A Little Help, we are doing everything possible to support our members as they do their part by staying at home. Therefore, we have canceled all activities and have temporarily suspended most of our member services except running critical errands such as getting groceries or picking up prescriptions. We are also checking in with members to see if they need help or maybe just need to chat for awhile. If you can help support our members or need help meeting critical needs, please call our office.
SOCIAL, CULTURAL, AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
A Little Help sponsors and recommends social, cultural, and educational programs to connect neighbors and strengthen communities. Current activities are shown on our monthly calendars, available on this website, and in our newsletters.
- Interest Groups: We offer interest groups and classes such as book clubs, yoga classes, and cooking classes. Your suggestions for new groups and activities are always welcome. Please contact the office listed below for more information.
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 and Mixers: A 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.
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 and to further A Little Help’s mission. We are adding these fundraisers to all of our locations. Fort Collins hosted its first fundraiser, A Little Fest, October 25, 2019.
Annual Holiday Party and 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 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 Saturday!: Service Saturdays! are twice-yearly events providing volunteer assistance for seniors with various home maintenance jobs, such as cleaning, organizing, raking, and other household tasks. Service Saturdays! provide many opportunities for intergenerational sharing and getting acquainted.
