Fundraising Events – If you enjoy any of the aspects of event planning…decorating, soliciting donated goods, recruiting attendees or working at the event, this is a great way to serve throughout the year.
Graphic Art, Videography and Photography – Use your creative arts skills to promote LivingWell’s services and events: help work on our website, take pictures or video at our events, design much needed brochures. We could use lots of help here!
Host a Baby Bottle Drive – Through your church or small group, host a baby bottle drive. We provide the bottles (piggy banks). You announce the drive to your group, distribute the bottles and have everyone return the filled bottles to you in a month. Then you drop the bottles off at our Orange clinic.
