We are so thankful for the youth of Heritage Baptist Church who came to be with our residents and staff the other day! They conducted devotions, spent one on one time with residents, walked dogs, washed walkers, wheelchairs, cars and company vans! They even put together a fun and patriotic "Variety Show" for the residents.

Our seniors got so much joy from seeing all of these young students and their heart to serve and make a difference in their community!
