Preparing Holiday Baskets

There's so much still to do!

For the past few weeks A.O.K. has been to the Blind Center of Nevada on several occasions.
We've made flavored popcorn, chocolate dipped pretzels, gourmet oreos and the most amazing nutty concoction I've ever sampled. We've packaged all these items individually in beautiful little boxes and festive bags. Now it's time to assemble the baskets!

Each year the Center fills orders of over 1,200 of these delectable baskets. The completed baskets are sold to the community as a major fundraiser for the organization.

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: 20 volunteer helpers needed today!

This event will be from 2:00-5:00pm. 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.

Program Manager at the Blind Center and Acts of Kindness member, Samantha Steele will be hosting this event.

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. Find out more about the Blind Center here: http://blindcenter.org/

    Hi Denise,
    I did not come today because although I was confirmed on this page, as of this morning at 9:30 I was bumped to the wait-list. At 10 AM I removed myself from the wait list. I don't know how or why that happened today but I want you to know that I was ready to attend, had I not been put on a wait list at the last minute. I would appreciate if you would explain. Thx.

      Hi Gail,
      I have no idea why you were bumped and moved to the wait list, I've honestly never experienced that before. The only thing I can figure out, is maybe some kind of glitch with Meetup.

    Had looked forward to helping here and I met some very nice volunteers. Unfortunately, the Lysol smell was so strong, after barely one hour, my eyes and nose were starting to burn. Not a healthy environment.

    What if the child is an infant and will most likely sleep the whole time?
