Opportunity Village Saturday of Service

Hi Everyone! I can't believe summer is coming to an end and the holidays are just around the corner! Opportunity Village has been having several Saturday's of Service events to get their place all ready for the new HallOVeen and of course, one of A.O.K.'s favorite, Magical Forest festivities.

 

Since 1954, Opportunity Village is a 100% local charity that serves people with intellectual disabilities to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families.  Proceeds from this extraordinary event go directly to support programs and services for the 3,000 people with disabilities served every year.

Opportunity Village needs volunteers to come help with indoor and outdoor projects on August 24th 8AM-12PM. Please come comfortably dressed and well rested to pitch in and get the place cleaned up and decorated. They have done this the past few weeks already so I am not exactly sure what is left for us to do but OV has said they definitely can keep us busy!

Families are welcome to come, too. Anyone under the age of 18 needs to be supervised by an adult.

Please remember to RSVP with integrity. See you there!

    I was hoping to get some guidance from OV on where to meet exactly, I will be waiting at the gate where the entrance for Magical Forest usually is at the end of the big parking lot in the back of the building. I will have my phone on me so feel free to call :) I will wait there for everyone. Thank you all so much for coming out!!
