The holiday season is near, and Generations is sponsoring its 10th annual Build*A*Basket project to help provide for the basic needs of Generations’ clients while bringing them some holiday cheer. Generations serves older adults in Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties.
These older adults are on fixed incomes and often cannot afford the everyday necessities that many of us take for granted. This project is open to schools, churches, businesses and individuals and involves purchasing a plastic laundry basket and filling it with items such as dish soap, deodorant and toothpaste. Some individuals decorate their baskets to make them more festive. Baskets must be completed and received by Dec. 15.
Generations’ Staff and volunteers will deliver the gift baskets to the clients. To register a donation basket and see a complete list of basket items, you may visit our website at www.generationsnetwork.org. If you have questions, you may contact Alma Kramer at 812-888-4527 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
