Well here is a perfect example of a project that not only was a blast for the chimpanzees, but a project you can do as an off site volunteer. From the creative network of neurons in Shelly Ladd's (our enrichment corrdinator) head, this Saturday was the official first Sock It To Ya - Saturday!Safely maintaining a volunteer support group at our sanctuary is often times very time consuming and has inherit risks. There is one volunteer program that we do maintain offsite and that is enrichment development. Seen in this album is little Jessarine, one of our "senior" off site volunteers.
From collecting chopsticks at her favorite asian restaurant so that we can make vegan shishkabobs to sharing the holiday spirit with our residents, Jessarine's special holiday wrapped treats were a welcomed gift.
Starting with clean empty socks and a collection of toys, fruit and treats... empty socks become filled socks and the ends are tied off. Sock It To Ya Saturday now begins. This was a really simple and fun project.
