Ways to help during the COVID-19 Crisis

In times of fear and uncertainty, it can be calming to reach out and help others.  At Melodic Connections, we are reaching out to students and seniors with ways to connect through music.  If you are looking for a creative and rewarding way to give back, please consider helping with one of these three volunteer opportunities.

Make Stick Puppet Packages

Purchase and assemble craft kits that teach students resiliency skills using puppets and online content produced by Melodic Connections.  Materials can be purchased from a number of retailers for approximately $10.  Assemble the kits in your own home and drop them off at the Melodic Connections studio.   If you would like to help with the puppet packages, fill out this short form and you will be on your way.  We will send you PDF instructions and supply lists.

Write Notes of Encouragement

Let a child know you care by writing a short hand-written note, using our provided format.  Each script utilizes Trauma Responsive Care principles to support children during this unusual and difficult time.  When you’re finished writing, drop off or mail your cards to the Melodic Connections studio. If note writing is your thing,  fill out this short form and we will send you PDF downloads of everything you will need.

Family Volunteer Project

Does your family enjoy creating artwork and giving back?  Show our local nursing home residents that your family is thinking about them during this difficult time. Select a card from our downloadable collection, have your child or family member color the picture, write a note yourself, then drop the finished card(s) off, or mail them to the Melodic Connections studio.  Fill out this short form and you will receive a link to the downloadable card formats that you can print and color.
