Residents of The Inn receive weekly visits from students of Friends Select High School. A small group of students better known as the “Helping Hands Club” are youths that want to make a difference by assisting and interacting with the elderly. Each week residents look forward to new activities that they can engage in with the students. Both residents and students have a wonderful time each visit developing personal connections and friendships. May 28th was their last visit for the summer break. The students were so kind to bring in gift bags filled with personalized items especially for each resident. Our residents were over joyed and repeatedly thanked the students. Residents offered hugs and kisses to express their sincere thanks and gratitude. We anticipate the students return in the fall semester.
