Making Spirits Bright
Benefits: Dreamweaver Foundation
Location: Dreamweaver Foundation, Carson HQ
The Dreamweaver Foundation hosts their annual Making Spirits Bright event, during which volunteers write holiday cards and create ornaments to deliver to elderly adults in senior care communities. Aiming to create a joyous and memorable holiday season for these individuals, the Dreamweaver Foundation will supply the cards and envelopes for volunteers to sign and stuff, then deliver them to elders who may not have the privilege of company or gifts this year. The Foundation recommends this event as a cheerful team-building exercise for companies. Contact Callie at [email protected] for more information.
