Nursing Home Project Follow-up:
A big thank you to everyone who helped write out personalized notes of encouragement for the Easter bags that were delivered to area nursing homes! New Life was able to provide over 250 residents with a small bag of candy and a personalized note of encouragement. One of the staff members at the nursing home expressed a HUGE thanks. They were so excited to be able to deliver something special to each one of the residents on Easter! Thanks again for your part in bringing some Easter joy to those in the nursing home!!
