Many opportunities exist to support the Mission and Programs of Memory Care Home Solutions. Click here for more ideas or read below.

Gifts can be structured to include a variety of planned or deferred giving opportunities. Such gifts also may help donors realize substantial tax advantages.

Community Connections Council – All are welcome! The Community Connections Council is a grassroots group being formed to bring professionals and volunteers who support Memory Care Home Solutions together to serve as liaisons in our community on behalf of the organization. This group will meet two times a year and be invited to participate in our other activities as volunteers or attendees.

Volunteer: Do you have a special skill or trade? Are you part of a group looking for a project?  Memory Care Home Solutions is always looking for individuals and groups to partner for long and short term projects.

Memorial/Tribute Gifts: Does a loved one or friend have a special occasion coming up? Would you like to honor the life of someone who has passed away? All donations made in honor of ANY occasion will be used to directly impact the lives of those we serve. A letter will be mailed to notify the individual or family you are honoring of this special gift. Special donation envelopes are available for distribution.

Home Safety Item Drive: Host an item drive in your place of work, worship, with your family or community group. The caregivers we serve are in constant need of items to assist in keeping their loved ones safe. Cabinet locks, door alarms, non-skid mats and more can be collected and donated. Consider replacing your annual gift swap with an item drive – or host a party and “charge” one item for admission.

Community Outreach: Memory Care Home Solutions is looking for individuals to assist with setting up and giving presentations in the community.

Schnucks e-scrip Program: Sign up at your local Schnucks or contact us and we will get a registered card in the mail to you. Hand your card to the cashier before you pay and Memory Care Home Solutions automatically receives a donation equal to 3% of your monthly purchases from Schnucks – at no cost to you! Recruit family and friends to participate.

Memories and Melodies: Held in November each year –Honorary Chairs and former awardees Ellen and John Wallace,  Mary Lee and Bob Hermann, Suzanne and Earle Harbison, Betty and David C. Farrell and Pat and Bill Peck invite you to join us for our annual function and largest fundraiser – where we will present the Alzheimer’s Community Service Award to Nancy and Craig Schnuck. Sponsorship Opportunities and Ads in the printed evening program are available. A Planning Committee is forming now; your expertise is needed! If you are not able to help plan or sponsor, give us a call and make sure your name is on the list for an invite.

Host an Event: Do you have a group just waiting for something meaningful to do? Host an event to support Memory Care Home Solutions! You choose the date, time and event – and let us know what we can do to help!
