Northfield Retirement Community Gives Thanks

During National Volunteer Week the Northfield Retirement Community wants to send out a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who have come out of the woodwork to help us get through these tough times.  We are so thankful for those who are sending us links to share talent and music with our residents, flowers being sent to brighten our days, prayer shawls coming in from churches, treats and meals being delivered for residents and staff, the homemade masks, gloves and hand sanitizer, coffee from local businesses, sewing projects, teachers wanting to set up lesson plans to include our residents, letters, drawings, and cards being sent.  The DJJD ambassadors cut out hearts for us to place in our windows to show our love and support for our community. Director of Activities and Volunteer Opportunities, Milosha Malecha, thanks the community, “It warms my heart each day to see so many people in our community giving with open hearts.” Community volunteers are happy to help saying, “my children and their friends wanted to bring a little cheer to the residents,” and share compassion because “we want our seniors to know we care.”
