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. Up to 30 volunteers are needed to help out today. 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

PS...I personally will not be attending this event. Your "go-to person" is A.O.K. member and Blind Center's Program Manager, Samantha Steele.

Have Fun!

    Joel and I enjoyed crushing pretzels for toppings immensely! Putting decorated oreo cookies in a bag was fun too and I hope the blind center makes lots of money to help them throughout the year! It feels great to help out.

    I'm sure everything is all planned and purchased, but....a tiny little tidbit. The leading cause of blindness in the US is....diabetes. Decadent treats make me cringe, I'm a diabetes educator! Just a thought. If any way to decrease the decadence with retaining the pleasure would be great. Some diabetics have some difficulty in sticking with their diets.

      Hi Tish,
      As long as your husband and son are both over 16 years of age that would be fine.
