Manger Mall is a Program of Chelan Valley Hope, and Chelan Valley Hope serves as the fiscal sponsor for Tender Loving Care for Seniors (TLC). We have the shared mission of helping people easily access essential resources, and together we can leverage our assets to multiply our reach.

Manger Mall

WITH CHELAN VALLEY HOPE SINCE 2009

The Manger Mall program first began in 2009 to help struggling families in the Chelan Valley provide a gift for their children at Christmas, with approximately 750 children served each year.  This year’s need is anticipated to be even greater due to economic and educational challenges facing families who are already working hard to make ends meet.  Manger Mall is organized and operated by a dedicated team who in past years has held a toy shopping event each December.  This was made possible with the help of nearly 150 volunteers, along with gift and monetary donations from the community.

This year, to protect participating families and volunteers due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, a drive-through event will be held on December 12 at the North Shore Bible Church in Manson. Parents will register their children and receive a Lake Chelan Chamber Bucks gift certificate for each of those children which can be redeemed at any store or business that is a member of the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce

Since toys cannot be delivered safely, Manger Mall is relying entirely on monetary donations this year to carry out their mission.  Donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 477 in Chelan, or by clicking on the “Donate to Manger Mall” button on the Home page.  Please make your donation by December 5, 2020.  The one thing that will not change is that this heartwarming annual community event will again ensure that many children in the Chelan Valley will have a Merry Christmas.  Thank you for your generosity and support.

Tender Loving Care for Seniors

WITH CHELAN VALLEY HOPE SINCE 2017

TLC offers volunteer visits, at no fee, to assist seniors to live comfortably in their own home.

Activities may include:

  • Companionship
  • Support to achieve goals for health & self care
  • Connections to other services in the community
  • Caregiver support

The mission of the TLC for Seniors Program is to improve the care and support of vulnerable seniors (age 60+) in Chelan Valley through personal contact by a trained volunteer friend. The goal is to help meet the needs of seniors who wish to have an excellent quality of life in their own home by providing assistance with activities and to access services when needed.

Trained volunteers (must have background check, confidentiality statement, and specific policies) are paired with a senior after an initial in-home assessment. The timing of volunteer visits and tasks are mutually agreed upon.                   

Activities may include just visiting, playing cards, doing puzzles, or helping with a home task, making appointments for health care, providing transportation for needed shopping and appointments or providing caregiver support. Volunteers can also assist with connecting seniors to other services such as home health, home repair and transportation.

In the first 3 yrs of operation, TLC has averaged 20-25 volunteers providing 2,300 visits to 84 seniors with about 4,000 hours of visits and 22,700 miles traveled.

To make a donation to TLC Visit the “Home Page” and click the button “Donate to TLC” or mail your check made out to TLC for Seniors to PO Box 635, Chelan, WA 98816 or drop by Chelan Valley Hope. A tax deductible receipt will be provided.

Volunteers: TLC is always interested in talking with potential volunteers. Commitment: 2-4 hours per month for 6 months.  

TLC Events: Alzheimer’s Support Group was temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 March 2020. TLC can provide individual support for families who have a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease. Several TLC volunteers have direct experience in this area. Please call Claudia Swenson who can provide resources and potentially provide a volunteer contact  to support your family.
