The Give Back Hour

Do you have an hour to give?

 
Join PGK monthly for an hour of virtual service from the comfort of your home or school. Much like our popular sessions during Create the Change® Week 2020, each of these hour-long sessions will explore one of our cause areas and involve an act of service to benefit one of PGK’s nonprofit partners. Sessions are being planned for the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Sign up for our newsletter to be alerted when new sessions are added.

March - Aid the Elderly

Companionship and comfort during the later years can mean so much, especially to those who are more isolated and have fewer opportunities for community than they did before. You can bring joy to older adults through simple acts of kindness and thoughtfulness.

DIY Pillows for the Elderly

Where: On Zoom

Who: All Ages (Younger Children Will Require Assistance)

How: Click here to register

Why: Everyone needs a little extra cushion at their dinner table chair, right? Especially our grandmas and grandpas. Join us to make DIY pillows for chairs at the dinner table. Not to worry, this is a no sew activity! All you need is some t-shirts you can cut up and some fleece. Aging requires courage, stamina, love, and COMFORT! As we age, aches and pains develop, some little, some not so little. Have you ever sat in a hard wooden or plastic chair for more than a half hour? Imagine doing so if your bones hurt, if your muscles were .tender. A little cushie comfort goes a long way toward helping our seniors feel just a little bit - and often a lot - better!

Why: Lift up someone else by creating personalized “Thinking of You” cards. We will send your heartfelt creations to our isolated, older adult clients.

February - Comfort the Sick

You don’t have to be a doctor to help the sick in your community feel a lot better! Just like you want to be cared for when you’re feeling unwell, you can do the same for people fighting major illnesses.
