Serving Seniors in the Community
North Cities’ pre-teen girls have brought warmth to the residents of Winter Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Garland, by delivering hand-made fleece lap blankets.
For the past five years, making these lap blankets has become a yearly project for the “Girls of Grace.” The project serves to teach the girls the valuable lessons of service, kindness, and giving, while at the same time providing an activity that is a lot of fun. This year’s batch of beautiful blankets was delivered on Saturday, November 19th.
The blankets were so appreciated, that Winter Park’s Activities Director asked the girls to continue making them throughout the year. The life-long lessons learned through acts of kindness and generosity will certainly serve these girls well as they grow to reflect the giving nature of God.
