Residents and Businesses in LoDo and the Central Platte Valley have joined together to form a network of volunteers to respond to neighbors as needed and desired. As we move through our lives, all of us have occasions when we could use some assistance. Although many have friends they can call upon to help, some are new to the area, or don’t know how or where to reach out.
As our neighborhood has evolved, we have been creating a wonderful sense of community. People care about each other and want to know when someone is ill, or has a loved one die, or is alone and needing assistance. We also like to respond to happy occasions, the birth of a baby, a major life passage. Often, those who help out, also benefit from the experience. Research suggests when someone does a kind act, serotonin is increased, and there is a positive impact on health and spirit.
These are some of the services that Angels may offer:
- Prepare and/or Deliver Food
- Provide Transportation
- Send a Card
- Brighten Someone’s Day
- Take Care of a Pet
- Run an Errand
- Be an Advocate
- Create a Comforting Environment
