Here at Wise Owls Initiative, we recognize the need for our elderly population to experience meaningful engagement while staying safe. That's why we've developed several COVID-19 friendly volunteer opportunities to achieve that goal!
Spreading the Joy
Our amazing volunteers create beautiful cards to be distributed among the elderly. Many recruit their children and grandchildren, and the senior citizens love them!
Tackling the Issue
Owl Pals are partnered with a senior citizen, and they become pen pals. They write to each other one to two times per month. This is a great activity for all age groups.
Making People Smile
This project is so much fun. Each resident in a participating facility will receive a mini terra-cotta pot, soil, seeds, and paint to decorate their pot, and plant daisies. This is an excellent activity for senior citizens because it engages them, encourages social activity, and gives them an opportunity to nurture. This project is funded by donations made through our Amazon Smile Wish List.
Phone Call Campaign
Making a Difference
Through our Support Services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Wise Owls Initiative, and a source of much success for our Volunteer Organization. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us to bring awareness to issues that affect the elderly. We are working to shed light on these topics. Want to partner with us?
Supporting the Alzheimer's Association
Making a Difference
We have joined the Fight Against Alzheimer's, and will be hosting a Card-a-Thon on June 20, 2021: The Longest Day.
All of our cards will go to area elders, and all pledges/donations received will go directly to support the Alzheimer's Association.
