Description

Show off your artistic abilities and brighten a Meals on Wheels client's day at the very same time.

Decorate a Meals on Wheels lunch bag (*specific size) or make crafts for seniors. A variety of crafts are accepted such as bookmarks, cards, tray favors, and small crafts. The crafts are delivered daily to seniors who receive Meals on Wheels.

All ages welcome! A virtual opportunity from home, work, or school. Service hours are available for students who decorate Meals on Wheels bags or create crafts. Service hours are awarded based on the quality and quanity of items donated.

Bag size: We utilize a larger paper sack, than the traditional lunch bag purchased at the store. You can purchase the bags at Walmart Target, Sam's Club, or Amazon. They are called GIANT (at Walmart or Target). The size requirement is 6 1/8 in x 4 in x 12 3/8 in. Please do not use the smaller bags as the meals will not fit in the little lunch sacks and we will be unable to award service hours.

As the volunteer, you are responsible for providing the materials to make the items for the program. (paper, crayons, markers, stickers, etc)

We do have a few guidelines that we suggest such as:
* Please keep all items gender neutral (for a man or a woman)
* Do not use glitter (it can become messy in their homes)
* Do not include any religious or political messages on the items as we are a government agency
* Do not use pop culture messages, song lyrics, or jokes as the senior adults may not know the references
* Do not include any food or beverage with your craft (due to diet restrictions)
* For privacy reasons please do not include your first and last name (can use your first name or group name)
* Lastly please ensure that the items are prepared in a clean sterile environment. Do not place the items on the floor at any time, as the bag will contain the meal, and we want to ensure all items are sanitary and germ free.

Items can be dropped off or mailed to our Olathe office located at 11811 S Sunset Drive SUITE 1300, Olathe, KS 66061
