Koinonia Homes, a nonprofit organization that serves approximately 600 adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in Northeast Ohio is seeking community volunteers to plan three events this year. Potential volunteers can meet either Monday, February 19th at 7:00 PM at the Parma/Snow Library, Conference Room A, or Tuesday, February 20th at 7:00 PM at the Solon Library in the Board room.
The volunteers will be planning a Spring Fling dance to be held at the Holiday Inn on Rockside Road on Sunday, May 6th. Activities including picking a theme, coordinating a dance contest, and other fun surprises for the guests. Volunteers will also plan a Fall Picnic and Hayride in the Fall, as well as a Holiday Party.
“This is a great opportunity for family members, donors, board members, and other community members to make an impact in the lives of people who have I/DD in our community,” said Cheryl Senko, Director of Development and Communications for Koinonia. “We tried to create opportunities for both the east and west-side to have meeting opportunities close to them.”
Interested volunteers can attend the meeting without any RSVP in advance but are encouraged to call Cheryl Senko at (216) 588-8777 ext. 350 with questions and ideas.
“We really need the support of the community to make these events successful,” exclaimed Senko. “The parties have grown in size and popularity, it takes a solid core of volunteers to make them successful.”
