Organized Acts of Kindness for Seniors (OAKS), founded in 2017 based on the national Village-to-Village Model of grassroots non-profit service for seniors, is a volunteer driven organization dedicated to helping seniors 55 and older live independently in happy, healthy and safe environments. OAKS leverages the talents, skills and commitment of volunteers to assist seniors residing in Bethlehem, Easton, Franconia, Littleton, Sugar Hill and Whitefield with tasks such as grocery shopping, house cleaning, transportation to medical appointments or community events, respite care and other daily tasks or projects.
To fulfill its mission, the OAKS is committed to the following goals:
- Organize and train OAKS Volunteers to assist OAKS Members with daily tasks and projects that help members to live independently.
- Provide OAKS Members access to educational, cultural and social activities to keep members informed, engaged and active.
- Further down the road, once we are more established, to provide a preferred provider directory to connect members with professional services such as plumbing and landscaping.
