WE NEED YOUR HELP TO HELP OTHERS! BUILD-A-BAG 2020: Generations is partnering with Purdue Extension, Red Cross and Daviess, Greene, Knox and Martin RSVPs in an effort to help the individuals that we serve. Please consider helping us by donating items to fill bags for these individuals who are encouraged to remain in their homes at this time. At present, it is difficult for them to get the items and products that they may need to help keep them safe and healthy. We want to boost their spirits by treating them to a goody bag full of things that they need. For a list of needed items, drop off locations and times, visit the Generations website at www.generationsnetwork.org or visit our Facebook page. Thank you, in advance, for supporting Generations and the individuals that we serve!
