Since the start of our program in August 2020 we have delivered over 2,000 room brighteners to seniors in assisted living facilities.




We have many groups in the community creating room brighteners for our seniors living in facilities. The groups include public and private schools, afterschool programs, adult groups, homeschool groups, businesses, and the public library. We’ve just completed our first round of deliveries of room brighteners to seniors living in facilities, about 2,000, and we are just beginning our second round of deliveries. We still need lots more and on an ongoing basis.


Please email Indianrivercares@gmail.com with questions. Cards can be delivered to the Environmental Learning Center entry pavilion 9 am - 4 pm, 7 days a week. Please list your contact information (name, email, phone) when dropping off so that we can send you a thank you. If you would like for the room brighteners to be picked up just email us and we can arrange for pick up. Thank you.

Presented by Kerry Bartlett, Carter, May 2020





While our community is beginning to open back up – although the nonprofit sector never closed down! – it’s time to begin considering what our respective organizations will be doing 12 and 18 months from now. Instead of looking at what’s on your desk right now or coming up next week, what’s your process, in partnership with your Board, for scanning the horizon based on what has been learned, the successful adaptations to service delivery models, the small and large successes and the ability to respond to changing needs and unforeseen barriers? We have two choices ... to evolve or repeat and repeating probably isn’t best for those you serve now and in the future. What are the top changes you are anticipating 18 months from now? What are your donors’ expectations going to be after a prolonged increase of e-communications and phone calls?

Each of you have been practicing adaptive leadership over the last two or more months. How are you going to build on that stronger “muscle”? And how has your Board’s role expanded or transitioned during this time? How might future expectations of Board member engagement be impacted?

Kerry Bartlett, Managing Director at Carter, will facilitate a 15-20 minute discussion around these questions. She will not be making a presentation; this is an opportunity to engage in a generative discussion using the questions above as thought igniters. In addition, you might want to invest 6 minutes in watching Simon Sinek’s video “There is No Going Back to Normal” (link below) to get yourself into the infinite mindset for this conversation.
