A time of Giving
Here at Elmcroft in state college we have many groups that come to visit and sing or make cards for the residents. So when talking with the residents about things they wanted to do, they said about doing something special to give back to the community. So some of the residents had learned to crochet or loom and were making scarves. We had worked on making them throughout the year. So we decided to use the scarves as a way to give back to someone special.
Oh what a great time of year to be giving!
We invited the local KinderCare daycare children to come to Elmcroft. Dorothy and Blanche started them off with singing Christmas Carols. Then Mary, Elvera and Betty had all the scarves that were made and we asked the children to come up and pick a scarf and the ladies helped them place the scarves around their necks. The remaining scarves where given to the teachers to take back to the center for other children that needed a scarf. What a great way to give back to the community.
