Happy Birthday, AOK!

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • Sunset Park Vollyball Courts and Bleachers

Last year, our amazing leader Alicia wrote, 

"Five years ago I was sitting in my apartment, frustrated by the fact I couldn't find a volunteer organization that I could work with around my busy schedule. With a similiar mindset as all of you, I decided, it was time to find a solution to the problem. In networking at different events, I quickly learned of Meetup.com and it seemed like the perfect platform to create what I had in mind and A.O.K (Acts of Kindness) was formed."

This year, besides having the responsibility of home and family, Alicia is traveling nearly everyday for her new (and improved) job. Time is a commodity that she just does not have right now.  All of the assistant organizers LOVE Alicia and would never want her to be disappointed that AOK's 6th Anniversary went by the wayside. 

So, on Septemeber 28th, we will celebrate 6 glorious years of service to our community, friendship, family, laughter and more gifts than we could ever count. We have partnered with more than 30 local organizations to make a real, positive impact on the Vegas Valley and beyond.  

Veteran AOKers. Newbies. Once in awhilers. Everybody is welcome.  AOK will provide the water, but we do ask everybody to bring a potluck dish to share.  From past experience, I can say that there will be some fabulicious food to enjoy. If you would like to bring along camp chairs or outdoor games, feel free. 


Of course, this would not be an AOK event without some community service, so we are asking you to please bring along a bag of candy that will then be used to make up Halloween goody bags for the kids of Casa de Luz and LV Art Reach. Also organizers will have tables set-up for us to write out notes of thanks to active and retired service members through a group called a Million Thanks. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to be in touch. 

We all look forward to seeing tons of our members out in the park. Thank you for being a part of AOK. 


PS- If you have any donations for the upcoming yard sale for Aid for AIDS of Nevada, you can feel free to bring them along.

    Sure wish I could've came. I went to the OV volunteering deal and didn't leave until 12:45. Hope it was a good time.

    One of my dogs came up lame this morning so I'm heading to the vet's office instead. Sorry to miss this.

      Oh no. Hope your dog is ok. I know how scary it is when something is wrong with your pet. We will miss you.

    I will have to find out from my husband if we can make it. Will try but I totally forgot.

    Crap totally forgot. I swear I need a personal assistant.

    Not sure if I can make it or not. I might be going out of town, and also volunteering at the OV if not. But in any case, I hope ya'll enjoy writing the letters to the military personnel. I know from personal experience how motivational and uplifting it is to receive anything from the citizens, especially from people that I didn't even know. I'll make it if I can.
