Mountain Peak Life

How You Can Help

Volunteer
Nederland Area Seniors appreciates our volunteers! Many opportunities are listed on our Volunteer page. Call our office to let us know you would like to help at 303-258-0799, or send us a note.

Donate
We welcome all donations to our nonprofit 501(c)3 serving mountain seniors. Thank you for supporting our work to enhance the quality of life for mountain seniors through nutrition, wellness educations, fitness, socialization, and cultural outings. Please visit our Donate page for further details.

Silent Auction Manager
Our Silent Auction is our biggest single fundraiser of the year. At an auction, everyone wins. The donor gains advertising visibility and new customers for their business, the buyer obtains a valuable service or item at a discount, and our nonprofit organization receives the money exchanged for it.

The Silent Auction only succeeds if everyone pitches in a little. Please ask businesses you frequent throughout the year, especially outside Nederland, if they can donate a gift certificate or item to our auction to benefit our nonprofit seniors group. Think of friends with available vacation time share dates or getaway cabins or who run a local air bnb and ask if they can donate a night or two. Ask a neighbor who bakes great pies or who can run a wood splitter what they might offer. Please carry a few donation forms in your car for when opportunities arise–available at our office or on our website at www.NederlandAreaSeniors.org on the Holiday Mountain Market page.

We also seek a Chairperson or Co-Chairs for this special section of our Holiday Mountain Market, held on the first weekend of December each year. We may be able to pay, so if you could use a short-term job with a very positive result for us, please let us know immediately at 303-258-0799.

Board Positions
With our organization expanding into exciting new ventures, we seek new ideas and energy every year. Please let us know how you can help maintain our forward momentum and share the leadership of our organization at 303-258-0799.

Card Donations
We appreciate donations of spare notecards so that we may send greetings to our friends in need. Anyone who has spare cards, including the packets which are sent from large organizations soliciting donations, please know that we gladly accept them at any time.

Home-Delivered Meals
Did you know that after each luncheon we serve, a volunteer picks up hot meals to deliver to local homebound seniors? Our deepest thanks and hugs go out to Susan Churches and Debbie Davenport who have volunteered for years to leave their work mid-day to provide this valuable service.

We need everyone's help for this project. Please alert us to anyone within a few miles of the Nederland Community Center who is 60+ (or disabled, dependent on someone over age 60) unable to leave their home unassisted, and could use a couple of homecooked meals delivered each week. For short term needs, such as a return from a hospital stay, we can also acquire a few frozen meals to add to the delivery. If you know anyone who could benefit from our home-delivered meals program, please call us at 303-258-0799.

Save a Tree
Sure, we like to save a tree and a dollar—but only if our email recipients really open and read our newsletter. Please let us know the best method to share our newsletter content with you—mail, email PDF, website (all newsletter events are posted here), Meetup site or other. Please let us know how we can best communicate with you.

CPA Audit Help Requested
We have multiple checks and balances in our financial controls, thanks to the hard work of staff at Accounting Specialists. Some grantors still require we also purchase an annual review of our books by an outside CPA auditor. Do any of our website readers know a CPA who might perform such a service for us at a reasonable rate? Please call our office at 303-258-0799 with contact information.

AAC Mountain Representative
Congratulations and a big thank you to Michele Hurliman, who has stepped up to represent mountain seniors through March 2020, on the Aging Advisory Council. Boulder County Commissioners appoint this volunteer board to apprise them of countywide concerns regarding seniors.
