Team Hally volunteers had a new opportunity at the Medical Lodge to sit with one of the residents who had had surgery and needed extra care. Spending two full days there gave several of us the blessing to really get to know not only individual residents better, but also to encourage and visit with staff.
The Medical Lodge of Gardner staff definitely gives love and care to the poor, needy and hurting — above and beyond their normal job descriptions. I was also so proud of our young people from Team Hally, who blessed the residents by reading to them, pushing them in their wheelchairs, bringing batteries for broken radios, playing and singing songs like Amazing Grace, playing cards and bingo, and spending hours simply chatting and loving.
Kari from the Medical Lodge keeps telling us what a blessing we are, but I think we would all agree that we are the ones who are eternally blessed! Please consider joining us as we continue to love on these precious ones!
Your next opportunity to join us is at 2 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14! We are helping the staff with a Valentine’s Sweetheart Dance and party. We will help the residents feel beautiful by putting on makeup, boas, giving them flowers, dancing, building ice cream sundaes, and making a craft.
Please message us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can join us or are interested in getting involved at the Medical Lodge!
