Warrenbrook Joins Valerie Fund Efforts

Seniors present craft kits for patients at Valerie Center.

The Warrenbrook Senior Center does a quarterly community service project and for this quarter, the center's members created craft kits to be donated to the Valerie Fund. 

"In addition, I offered the opportunity for members to purchase craft kits that would be donated along with the kits we created," Warrenbrook Manager Gwen Chalker said. "The response I received was overwhelming.  We ended up filling three boxes with an assortment of donated purchased craft items and four boxes filled with craft kits." 

The community service projects provide opportunities for the center’s members to give back to the community—just because they are 60 and above, that does not mean they can not be supportive and help those that are less fortunate, Chalker said. 

"Our Valerie Fund craft kit donation day allowed the members to feel needed and useful," she said. "The energy level in the room while the members were assembling the kits was inspiring.  There was no stopping them.  If we did not run out of craft kits to assemble, they would have continued for another 30 minutes (until lunch was served). 

"They were excited to be involved in such a worthwhile project," Chalker added. "It was truly a 'feel good' program. Other than our annual Knit ‘N Crochet Circle donation day in November, this is the best community service project day that we have had at the center since I became manager almost three years ago."  

The total craft donation – 25 Dreamcatcher kits, 27 Rainbow Hanger kits, 32 Sun Visor kits,12 Rose Pin kits and 18 Doorknob hanger and 20 white hats to be decorated with glitter glue, gem stones and foam shapes.
