The Giving Angels is a non-profit organization dedicated to making a positive impact on the low-income, independent-living senior community of the Verde Valley in Northern Arizona. We do this by distributing gift bags filled with hygiene and personal care items intended to provide comfort and improve health of underprivileged seniors. We openly share our model for other communities to adopt.
We ensure that seniors are remembered with gifts and personal communication during the holidays. Our volunteers collect donated gifts, sort, wrap and deliver gift bags to the elderly in mid-December.

Seeking Core Angels

See all wishes from Giving Angels

Description

The Giving Angels is seeking new members to add to the core group of volunteers. These are the individuals that assist in setting up the volunteer schedules, lead or assist the scheduling for drop off times and locations for the gift deliveries, assist in shopping for gifts and setting up the floor space for assembling the bags, social media postings, etc. There is a small core group now, but a few more people would make the work that needs to get done easier and even more fun. And this is something where you’re giving a little bit of your time for a short 2 to 3 month period out of the year.

Every year, it is such a rewarding feeling being able to help our low-income seniors. One of our Angels shared a memory:

“I remember delivering to a housing area in Cottowood a couple of years ago and an elderly gentleman came to the door with his coat, hat and gloves on. I apologized that we had caught him getting ready to go out but he responded, “oh not at all, I keep the heating way down to save on my utility bill”.”

Many of us don’t even think about having to regulate our lives like that. Unfortunately, many of our recipients do.

If you want to learn how you can help, please contact us.

A tremendous amount of gratitude and many Thanks to all the people who were able to put aside a couple of hours in their day to come out and help The Giving Angels prepare 600 Gift Bags for seniors in the Verde Valley Community.
