Join our auxiliary

We need new members in the CCNH Auxiliary.

Our auxiliary has been a part of what we do since the mid 1960s. The members donate hundreds of hours each month to help our residents. Some do neighborly visits, some help in our general store, others do filing and other office chores and more.

However, our members are getting old and are not able to do as much as in the past. The members are moving to the side and we don't have enough new members to take over. I cordially invite you to consider joining our auxiliary. The dues are modest and you are not required to spend lots and lots of hours here. You don't need to attend meetings, although that would be good.

Let me know when you want to come in and explore what a rewarding experience it can be by volunteering at CCNH.

Donate iPods

Don't toss them! Donate them!

Our residents need to learn new technology. We are wanting to try something with those devices that are due to be replaced. As long as they work!

Let me know ! ! OK? OK!

A different kind of volunteering!

We have started something new at Champaign County Nursing Home. Movie night. With popcorn.

However, we would like a donation of a popcorn popper. Our thought is that the smell of fresh popped stuff will help draw residents to the movie. We have done some looking around and investigating many things. Walmart has a nice one (not too big and not too small) that has wheels for easy mobility. It is $147.00. Please consider donating a popcorn popper to CCNH.

Let me know when you will bring it to us.

Share your musical talents!

We have many opportunities for you!

There are several organized activities that occur each month and music would be a welcome addition. Generally, on Friday afternoon at 2:15 we gather together to do something special. A themed party; most would be appropriate for music.

The last Friday of the month is Root Beer Floats.

The first Wednesday of the month is Ice Cream Social.

There are other times that music would work. Will you share your talents?

Let me know! OK? OK!
