Residents of Grundy Hall, Doylestown, PA

Thanks to a very generous donor, the residents of Grundy Hall will recive their art cabinet!

Grundy Hall is an affordable housing community serving low income seniors.  One of their residents recently started an art program for any senior who would like to learn about painting and drawing.  They plan to meet once a month and will experiment with a variety of mediums.  They would love to have a large storage cabinet for all of the supplies and this is not in their budget.  We need to raise $1,000 to make their wish come true.  Please donate today!

Residents of St. Joseph's Manor, Philadelphia, PA

We are excited to announce that we have received the funding needed to grant this wish!  The residents will soon be visited by local high school students who will deliver the tablets and help them learn how to use them.

The Residents have been nominated by their Volunteer Coordinator to receive four tablets which will be used to enhance their daily activities. There are many benefits for seniors who are able to use them. One benefit is that they can provide excitement and open-up a new means of communication to those who can't express themselves in the way they desire. Another is that the music and movie options help to trigger memories of their youth and family years ago.

Judith A., 71, Kings Park, NY

Judith helped care for her mother for many years, until circumstances changed and her mother needed to move away to live with her brother.  Judith is extremely close to her, but they have not had the opportunity to see each other in two years because she cannot afford to the travel expenses.

Judith has volunteered as a crisis counselor at a local college, typed the church bulletin for her parish and played the piano for residents of a nursing home.

Her mother's health is declining and Judith wishes to visit and spend some quality time with her.  We need to raise $1,600 to cover her travel and lodging expenses.
