ROARING FORK VALLEY

A LITTLE HELP IS IN ROARING FORK!

A Little Help’s Inaugural Service Saturday in the Roaring Fork Valley was a huge success!

Sixteen cheerful and generous volunteers from the Mid-Valley to Aspen helped out more than 20 seniors at their homes and received many hugs (and bags of leaves).  The lingering snow and early chill in the air did not interfere with rigorous raking, gutter cleaning, window washing, screw tightening, weed whacking and decluttering that was accomplished. New friends were made and return visits were planned. We are looking forward to our next service day. 

If you or a friend or family member is in need of a little help, not just for Service Saturday, but more ongoing needs,  please call us at 970-404-1923 or email us at office@alittlehelp.org and we will be happy to get you an application. 

A Little Help provides older members with vital resources and services. Our HelpConnect system also provides easy ways for members to request assistance with or be refered to nearly any non-medical resources.

MARCH HIGHLIGHTS

WE NEED YOU to help deliver meals and for driving, visiting, and snow shoveling. Get better acquainted with your neighbors, make new friends, and get that warm fuzzy feeling from truly helping someone else! Be sure to read about our new staff member Jake Dresden. He's a long time volunteer who has joined our Denver office.  See this month's newsletter for more details and for notes on outside activities that may be of interest.
