Hello Horizons Community!
My name is Kami and I am honored to be the newest member of the Horizons family. I will be stepping in over the next few weeks as Volunteer Coordinator. Mary is taking me under her wing and showing me the ropes of this awesome organization and our volunteers who do so much for our local seniors!
A bit about me: I have had a long and twisting road to Horizons which includes being a professional actor, singer and costume designer. I have lots of stories! Come chat with me sometime! I am most recently coming to you from the education realm where I gained experience managing and coordinating volunteers. I learned the value of volunteerism first hand. I currently live in Ely, with my partner John and our two cats. I love sewing, theater, and music!
My family has benefited from Meals on Wheels for multiple family members in their senior years and I am thrilled to be part of this process! I can't wait to meet all of the wonderful volunteers who make this organization a vital resource for our community.
If you have questions, or would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to reach out! I would love to hear from you!
SEE YOU SOON!
Kami Zbanek Hill
Help Us Spread SomeJOY!
The Holiday season is a time for family. We are all feeling the pinch of the pandemic this time of year with family gatherings cancelled or postponed. Our home-bound seniors may be missing out on what little family time they have. We need your help to bring them a little joy!
We needvolunteers to help deliverone hot meal, six frozen meals, and a seasonal gift bag to home-bound Eastern Iowa adults on November 24-25 and December 22-23.
Make a donation at your local Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust locations between
Nov. 9 – Dec. 11.
We have an Amazon Affiliate List!
If your options are limited for donating time, or if you need a no-contact way to contribute, consider a donation of an item for our holiday gift bags!
If you click on the event link above, you will find links to needed items on Amazon, which you may ship directly to Horizons and Meals On Wheels. Horizons, in turn earns a percentage from Amazon for each item sold!
What an easy way to make a huge difference!
Need an activity for your small group?
We still need volunteers for all our regular shifts!
This is a opportunity for your group to label or pack 1,000 meals in under an hour for the community or back meals for 300+ home-bound seniors who depend on Horizons for a nutritious daily meal.
Meal Labeling and Packing shifts can be done by groups of 6-8 in less than 2 hours. If you're interested in coordinating an activity for your organization email email@example.com today!
Our volunteer Erica has been volunteering with us almost every morning since May. This woman has a great work ethic! While she volunteers 5 days a week with us, she has 2 jobs, participates in beauty pageants, is an aspiring model, and has a pet bunny and goldfish! We're so lucky to be supported by this community and hope you get a chance to volunteer with this wonder woman!
While we don't see an end in sight for this global pandemic, we continue to add Frozen Food Labeler and Meal Packing shifts to our SignUpGenius here!
