Wayne County Nursing Home recently partnered with Week of Hope campers for seven weeks of volunteer services.
Youth and adult volunteers from all over the U.S. shared their time and talent with the nursing home. The volunteers played games, sang songs, visited with the nursing home residents and spent hours gardening.
The campers’ most inspiring project was their assistance in refurbishing two pianos. The pianos were old and out of tune. Rather than discard them, campers painted the pianos and turned them into planters, which were placed in the nursing home’s patio gardens. The nursing home staff and residents were inspired by the campers’ creativity and generosity.
