COMMUNITY SERVICE

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s these little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” 
—Desmond Tutu

Our Group meets on various days and times to participate in a variety of service activities in Powell and the Delaware County area.  For the past ten years, we have enjoyed interacting with residents of a local assisted living facility through monthly Bingo games, distributing birthday cards, and organizing Holiday and Spring Tea Parties.   We also assist with the Powell Community Easter Egg Hunt by piecing together thousands of plastic eggs which we help scatter on the day of Hunt.

Other recent projects include organizing a gift bag station for the Powell community holiday festival, assembling an auction gift basket and preparing snack bags for local charitable organizations.  We also donate specific items to charities in our area, such as canned goods for food pantries, accessories for women returning to the workplace, and pet items for the local humane society.

Members are encouraged to suggest new service projects for our group!

If you are interested in serving others through this Interest Group, please contact Sharon Hinshaw or Carolyn McQuattie.
