Build-A-Basket project returns

This holiday season, Generations is sponsoring its 11th annual Build-A-Basket project to help provide for the basic needs of Generations’ clients while bringing them some holiday cheer.

Generations serves older adults in Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties. These individuals are on fixed incomes and often cannot afford the everyday necessities that many take for granted.

This project is open to schools, churches, businesses and individuals. Just purchase a laundry basket or tote and fill it with items such as dish soap, deodorant, toothpaste, etc.  Many individuals also decorate their baskets to make them more festive.

A list of suggested basket items, as well as list of drop-off sites is available on the Generations’ website at and on the Generations’ Facebook page. Participants may register their baskets online by following the link on the website or Facebook post.  Baskets must be completed and dropped off no later than Friday, Dec. 13. Generations’ staff and volunteers will deliver the gift baskets.

For additonal information or to register your basket by phone, contact Alma Kramer at 812-888-4527, 800-742-9002, or by e-mail at
