It’s great to be an Angel Hugs member and here’s why:
Best of all, you meet other people just like yourself that want to make a difference in a person’s life. What a wonderful way to make new friends! We meet once per month, normally the first Sunday of each month.
Coffee & Tea are provided at every meeting. Snacks are brought in by two members each month. We have a draw to pick those two members the month before.
You have access to free patterns! Other free patterns from members, magazines, the internet and other sources are made available to you also when available! eg. hats, mitts, baby sets, and more!!!
We often have yarn donated to us and supply it as available to our members.
A monthly newsletter which includes ‘Tips & Tricks’, ‘Volunteer News’, ‘Recipes’, ‘Smiles & Giggles’, and much more. Also your Birthday and Angel Hugs Start date are announced in the newsletter. Get Well and Sympathy cards will be sent to each member as needed!!
We have a Volunteer Appreciation Day in April. We have a luncheon that is provided for the members to show our appreciation for all your hard work that you do for us. Throughout the year you receive points for your donations toward a certificate. At 50 points you receive your Angel Hugs pin. These certificates are given out on Appreciation Day. Other members who haven’t earned enough points for a points certificate will receive an appreciation certificate. Everyone goes home with a certificate!!! We also have awards for bronze, silver, and volunteer of the year which are given out also.
We have a Christmas Potluck Dinner in December.
Angel Hugs started in November 1998. Therefore we celebrate our anniversary every year!
