Volunteers Host "Vacation Bible School" for Nursing Home Residents

Residents at four nursing homes were treated to their second annual Vacation Bible School (VBS) thanks to a group of volunteers. “It is just a blessing for us to be able to bring a smile to their faces,” said the woman who organized the week's activities. The residents learned songs, had
Bible studies and made crafts.

“They love it,” said the nursing home administrator. “This gets some of the residents who normally don’t get out of their rooms, out to participate.” This year more valunteers were involved, including children who are extra special to the nursing home residents. One volunteer said it is important to see that nursing home residents are visited and taken care of. These volunteers made sure to interact with the residents and see that everyone was having fun. The group plans to host a VBS again next summer. For more, read the story.
