Project Description

Community Residences (CR) provides housing and services to individuals with disabilities and/or mental health diagnoses. CR is grateful to be able to provide for the needs of the individuals we support but we cannot cover many extras. Unfortunately, many of CR residents do not have family or friends to share in the fun and festivities of the holiday season and so, CR hopes to brighten up the season with a unique gift to be given to each individual residing in a CR program.

Volunteer help is needed to create over 450 special art and craft items so that each individual will receive a gift. The activities are all indoors and great activities for individuals, groups, youth and/or families to participate in. We will have stencils, templates and many ideas for you to use in creating unique and special gifts.

If you have 1, 2 or 3 hours to spare for this project, please sign up and help us brighten up the day for individuals with disabilities by completing fun projects for national Make a Difference Day!!!
