SENIORS WITH WARM HEARTS
“12 DAYS OF GIVING”
 
Seniors with Warm Hearts (SWWH) have adopted a new approach this year to help spread a little extra happiness to those less fortunate for Thanksgiving, Chanukah and Christmas. They have foregone their annual “Giving Tree” for the Seniors with Warm Hearts “12 Days of Giving.”
 
They will offer 12 opportunities on 12 different days for members of the community to donate this year to four needy organizations they help support. Members will be located at a table in the Community Center where you can drop off your checks or gift cards.
 
Here’s how you can help:
·         You can purchase a gift card from Walmart, Target or Amazon or McDonalds, Subway, Panda Express, etc.  Your donations will be distributed to Project 150, Street Teens and SAFE House. Any dollar value is welcome!
 
·         You can make a check payable to Project 150 for their Thanksgiving or Christmas family meal which they do each year. Your $25 donation will supply a teen and their family of four with a HOLIDAY MEAL.
·        
You can make a check payable to Serving Our Kids Foundation. Your $25 donation will help the organization purchase food items to make up their weekend food bags. Smaller or larger donations are always accepted.
All the donations are considered tax deductible.
 
Please drop off your donations at their table at the following times/locations:

Block Captains Needed
In Sun City Aliante Neighborhood Watch, we have 50 active Block Captains.  That may sound like a lot, but let’s look at reality.  A Block Captain is assigned 10 to 20 homes in their immediate neighborhood.  That would mean our current Block Captains are in contact with about 500 homes max!  We are a community of over 2000 homes, leaving over 1500 homes with no Block Captain contact.  We, in Neighborhood Watch, are appealing to those of you who are looking for a great way to connect with your neighbors and feel good about your contribution to the community.
 
What does a Block Captain do?
1.    Be a good neighbor. 
2.    Pick up a neighbor’s newspaper when they tell the Block Captain they will be away for a few days.
3.    Watch for any unusual activity at a neighbor’s house if they are away.  It is often an open gate, an open electrical box, a flyer on a door, to name a few observations, that could signal criminal interest in a home.
4.    Watch for strangers roaming the neighborhood or unknown or unidentified vehicles in the area.
5.    Check on a neighbor if he/she doesn’t seem to be keeping their usual routine – make sure all is okay. 
 
What are the skills needed?
1.    A Block Captain is fingerprinted, and a background check is made by the North Las Vegas Police Department. The cost of the process is paid for by the Sun City Aliante Board of Directors.
2.    Block Captains handle their contacts with neighbors in the manner that reflects their comfort level.  From a simple “hello” to a fun “block party” – you do what is best for you to keep in contact with current and new neighbors.
 
All residents are invited to the monthly Neighborhood Watch meeting on September 19, which starts at 4 p.m. There will be a social hour before the meeting, starting at 3 p.m.  See if you have a Block Captain for your neighborhood and, if not, talk with our Block Captains to see if you might be interested in joining us.  To sweeten our invitation, refreshments will be served.
 
What is the pay for being a Block Captain?
    You get the satisfaction of making a significant contribution to your community and you get to meet a lot of nice people.
 
For information regarding the Sun City Aliante Neighborhood Watch program, contact our Coordinator, Jim Blossey, at jimandpatb@embarqmail.com or 775-530-5119. 
 
Be safe; if you see something, say something!

Community Coupon Collection

The Veterans Auxiliary takes care of these coupons and sends them off to a location in Florida for distribution to military bases in the USA and around the world.  We would like to invite community members to bring their coupons to us at the Vista Room on the 3rd Tuesday of the month between 9 - 9:30 a.m. during the construction.  

 

They will have collections on  the following dates :

  November 19, and December 17. We will have an update for all after the end of the year when we know a little better how construction is coming along. 

Thank you for your generosity!

 
 

Seniors Assisting Seniors “Volunteers Needed"

SAS is looking for volunteers to answer the SAS phone and to be of assistance to residents. They also need people to fill in when necessary. Any member of the community is invited to join. As a SAS volunteer, you will be assigned the SAS phone during your designated time.  The assignment will occur once a year for a half month (1-15 or 16 to end of the month).

 

Their mission includes, but is not limited to, changing light bulbs, smoke/CO2 detector batteries, furnace/AC filters and adding salt to water softeners.  They also loan out durable medical equipment such as, wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, bedside toilets, knee walkers, etc.  Items are stored at the SCAL Community Center store room.

 

This valuable free service provided to SCAL residents and is greatly appreciated by those who are unable to perform these services themselves. Please contact David Hollander at 702-480-7668 or email at david_hollander2003@yahoo.com  if you have any questions or wish to volunteer.
