Big Days of Serving — Aug 24 and 25, 2013

BDOS Slider Image - Aug. 2013

Thanks to everyone who volunteered for Big Days of Serving–we had over 170 people working on Saturday and Sunday!

We sorted and bagged purchases at Community Threads resale store,  we invited 540 neighborhood households to participate in our Food Drive, we made 160 bookmarks for the Jehovah ministry, we had 33 people donate blood, we joined over 50 seniors for Bingo and entertained 65 seniors with music at the Lutheran Home, we removed invasive species and cleaned litter at Busse Woods, we assisted at the Habitat ReStore in Elgin, and we made 74 cards for cancer patients for Phil’s Friends.

This is what people said about their experience:

  • It was a great experience. I think we could do this more often at the Lutheran home if they would like that.
  • Thank you for the opportunity. We would love to do it again.
  •  We had a wonderful time at bingo last Saturday. We as a group decided we would like to do this again on some Saturdays during the year and not only on our  Big weekend.
  • Nicely organized.  I brought my friend who lives in the home with me and it was a nice way to spend some time with her.
