National Social Worker’s Month(March)-- gratitude baskets


In 1984, Ronald Reagan officially established the National Professional Social Worker’s Month. March provides a time for each of us to remember the important community roles filled by our social workers. While the profession is known in title, the job responsibilities and potential impact of a social worker in a community may not be completely understood by all. Social Workers champion access, equality and fairness. Social Workers improve the fabric of society by being advocates for people who need help addressing serious life challenges and exploring their options.

The Social Work profession was established more than 100 years ago to provide as many people as possible with the tools and support they need to overcome many types of adversity and reach their full potential.

Every day, Social Workers witness the best and worst of human nature. A Social Worker’s success is often defined by the opportunities people enjoy thanks to their intervention. Social Workers believe they have a responsibility to effect positive change for the future. Social Workers play a big role in helping people and families, often times during off hours and holidays.

On March 18th at 6:00 PM, we will be making gratitude baskets to let them know how much we appreciate their service to all of us and those whom we don’t know. The basket party will take place at the LDSFS Aurora office.

We invite anyone involved with FSA to join in donating items for the gratitude baskets. Items can be delivered to the LDSFS office, mailed to the office or you may contact privately contact another member to make arrangements to drop items off. We need the following:

· Homemade goodies
· Prepackaged goodies
· Stuffed toys
· Items for NICU (booties, onesies, hats, blankets)
· Other items you may feel inspired to include
· Baskets
· Tissue paper

Once the baskets have been made, anyone wishing to participate will be provided with a baskets and accompanying hospital packet for delivery. The hospital packet contains information, pamphlets and other adoption related information along with pass-along cards and contact information for our case workers. You can deliver individually or in teams; we would like to hit as many hospitals in Colorado and Wyoming as possible. Let’s gather together to show our appreciation for everything that our Social Workers do!

---- Awesome write - up CLOVER! ANYONE ( regardless of agency) is welcome to contribute any of the items as well as thank you cards, letters or pictures thanking our social workers for what they do!
