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.
A Little Help hosts a variety of social and educational programming in each of our Locations to connect neighbors and strengthen communities. Current programs are shown on our monthly calendars and newsletters.
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 & 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.
