No bunny compares to the volunteers at ADEC when it comes to preparing Easter Eggs for Crossroad Community Church in Goshen.
Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities at ADEC’s six day service locations across Elkhart and St. Joseph counties stuffed more than 90,000 plastic eggs for the church’s annual Easter Egg hunt.
In fact, volunteering to stuff Easter Eggs for Crossroads is a personal experience for some ADEC clients who are former members of the church. However, volunteering is a universal activity, and so is the pride that comes with knowing that you’ve done a good deed for others.
“I think the sense of accomplishment is huge when it comes to volunteer opportunities,” says Aleigha Miller, the team manager at the Day Service at Goshen. “Our individuals here love to share what they have accomplished.”
The individuals we serve at ADEC have sprung into action to serve their community. Here are a few ways you can do the same by supporting ADEC:
- Walk, Run or Ride-A-Bike with ADEC on May 18.
- Drink coffee for a cause.
- Lend a helping hand.
- Give the gift of choice and possibility.
