The Silverado Service Club

The Silverado Service Club was created to ensure that our residents maintain the ability to experience purpose in their lives and to allow them the opportunity to make a difference in the community. Although the staff helps residents complete these volunteer projects, the desire to contribute toward a greater cause grows from the benevolent spirit within each of our residents.

Once a month, residents complete projects like making quilts for seniors in need, knitting blankets for a hospital’s maternity wing or even baking dog biscuits for their local rescue shelter.

However, this past September many of our Service Clubs joined in Share our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a nationwide effort to raise funds for underprivileged children. Our residents spent days deciding on what treats they would prepare and with a little help from our culinary staff, they prepared dozens of baked goods to give to friends and family in exchange for their charitable donations.

The event not only allowed our residents to support a great cause, but because the timing correlated with Alzheimer’s Action Day (September 21), it also provided moth-watering testament to show the surrounding communities that people with memory-impairment still have much to offer.

In total, our communities were able to collect over $2,000 in charitable donations. Special thanks to all those who were a part of this amazing effort!
