Hello! Do you know how many elderly are lonely, bored, and sometimes forgotten in nursing homes? Well, not with us around. Our organization lets them know people care. You can make a difference in your community, too! Volunteer in our next event with the Feel Alive Project (FAP)! Our next FAP volunteer monthly event is June 21 & 22, and it's an opportunity to make a huge difference in appreciating the elderly community! We usually have a great music performance on Saturday at 3 pm, with games and some pets. Would you like to participate that weekend? If so, send me an email!

 

We are an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the elderly by providing volunteers and coordinating monthly activities so that everyone involved experiences the feeling of "Aliveness!" So basically, you come and share something that you enjoy with the nursing home residents. I play piano and guitar and sing, so that's what I do. Some volunteers paint the fingernails of the ladies there, and others bring their pets (dogs, bunnies). Mom's bring their kids--which the elderly absolutely love. Or you can bring a board game (they have some there, especially BINGO which is a hit). Whatever hobby you like, do that and share it with the elderly! That way it's fun for both of you, and your time is appreciated...which you'll know from the smiles you get in return. :) We need volunteers for this weekend (in the afternoon)! Let me know if you’re interested in helping out and I’ll give you more info. Our website is http://www.feelaliveproject.org.
