Preparing Holiday Baskets

Once again A.O.K. will be assisting the Blind Center of Nevada with making holiday gift baskets that are sold to the community as a major fundraiser for their organization.

Each year the Center fills orders of over 1,200 of these delectable baskets. These beautiful handmade baskets will be made with loving care by us A.O.K.er's

We're going to fill each basket with an assortment of gourmet treats from decadent chocolates to exotic specialties. Wrap it up in cellophane and then for the finishing touch, we'll accent each masterpiece with a beautiful bow!

Volunteers:

This event will be from 10:00am-2:00pm. No need to bring anything, all the supplies will be there for us. Bring a friend if you'd like, come for an hour or stay for the day. Please no children under 16. As always, please RSVP with integrity. Please post any questions that you may have below.

Thank you,

Denise

The Blind Center of Nevada is one of the state's oldest charities and has been serving people who are blind or visually impaired since 1955.

    Wow! I feel like a gained 5 pounds today just from looking at and smelling all the goodies. I must confess though, I did sample a few...just for quality control.

    Denise, I am going to be driving at least 30 minutes to attend. It looks like we have lots of people signed up, and I want to make sure my help will be needed. I heard about someone that came to volunteer once, and was turned away because they had to many volunteers. I am looking forward to helping . I just want to make sure I wil be needed. Thanks

      Leslie, you will not be turned away here. There is plenty to do. But if the drive is to much, please do not feel bad for not coming. Thank You, Sam
