WINTER/SPRING 2022


Happy 2022 everyone! It's been a while since anything has been sent out regarding the Socialization and Recreation programs so without further ado, let's get into it! As the weather clears up and the Covid-19 positivity rates decline, let's keep our fingers crossed that more opportunities arise for some fun activities and new memories.

 

The Special Olympics swimming practice team took a brief hiatus during the recent Covid-19 spike, but has returned to regularly schedule practices on Wednesday nights from 7:30pm to 8:15pm at the Boyertown YMCA. Helping Hands will not be providing transportation to or from the YMCA. We will, however, provide staffing at the YMCA and in the pool if needed. If you are interested in signing someone up for these practices, they must be able to tolerate a face mask or face shield until they enter the swimming pool. Most, if not all, of the individuals interested in attending will need to fill out a Special Olympics medical form and a Covid-19 waiver form that will need to be handed in as well. Please contact the main office (610-754-6491 or email Jaimee Scott at jscott@helpinghandsinc.com) so we can compile a list of anyone planning to attend.

 

Another activity that everyone has been asking about lately is BOWLING! We have decided that Fall 2022 might be a great time to start up our Sunday Bowling league at the Limerick Bowling Alley. More details and a specific start date will come as the season gets closer.

 

We all know what will go perfectly with the upcoming warmer weather... SHORE WEEKENDS! I have tentatively scheduled 3 shore weekends during the Spring. The individuals who were slated to attend the January shore weekend will get first choice of which weekend they'd like to attend. The dates for these weekends will be:

  • March 18th – March 20th 2022
  • April 22nd – April 24th 2022
  • May 13th – 15th 2022

 

Participants will arrive at the Helping Hands office at 12:00pm on the Friday of their scheduled weekend and would return around 7:00pm on their scheduled Sunday. All participants who would like to sign up must be vaccinated. This does not include booster shots, only the 2 doses for Moderna/Pfizer or the 1 dose for Johnson and Johnson. These weekends would consist mostly of home-based activities, so participants should be aware that shopping and outdoor activities will be limited. More information will be sent out once you or your individual's spot is secured. The cost for these shore weekends is $250 per night, so $500 per weekend. We do accept waiver-funding for these weekends as well.

To sign up for either shore weekend, please contact the main office at 610 754 6491. These weekends will be first come, first served and spots will be limited.

 

 

NOTES

- FUNDRAISING! We are currently running our Reading Phillies fundraiser that you may have seen in years' past. Please help us out by purchasing a book of 6 tickets to any of their 2022 regular season home games. Their price per ticket is normally $10 but if you buy a book from us it comes out to only $6.50 a ticket. Plus, at least $14 from your purchase will go to Helping Hands Inc!

It's a really easy process- just visit https://bit.ly/3nCfbBA to purchase the $39 fundraising ticket book. Like I said, the ticket books have 6 undated general admission tickets in them that may be used in any combination for any 2022 regular season home game!

Once you're on the site follow this outline:

1. Type in Helping Hands Inc. for the "Organization Name"

2. Type in "Jaimee Scott" for the "Name of the Seller"

3. Type in how you'd like to receive your tickets (email, text, or mailed).

Then the R-Phils will either email, text or mail your tickets to you, whichever option you choose, within the next 7 days! Please feel free to share this to anyone else you know who might be interested in helping us out!

* We will also have physical copies of the ticket books on-hand at our main office for those who do not have access to the internet or cannot otherwise order through the Reading Phillies website. Contact Jaimee Scott at Helping Hands if you have any questions or issues.

 

- We have officially scheduled a long overdue BASKET BINGO RAFFLE! This will take place on Sunday, September 18th 2022 at the East Greenville Fire Company. More details will be posted on our Helping Hands Facebook and website so keep your eyes open!

 

- Another long overdue event is our Annual Dinner, which is scheduled for October 28th, 2022. More details will be posted on our Helping Hands Facebook and website so keep your eyes open for that as well!

 

- Since our Open House get-together for Bruce McWaters was cancelled due to Covid-19, we are now looking to do something outside in the Spring to commemorate all of the years he put into this agency before retiring. A picnic lunch will be held at the Boyertown Park on April 9th, 2022 and is open to anyone who would like to attend.
