Last weekend our SUGAR Volunteers visited Beneva Lakes Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center. We had a small group of volunteers out to play games and brighten the day of some of our senior citizens. The conversations I heard as I walked around the room were amazing. The kids were learning about their new friends, playing games like catch and even learning some tricks and new hand claps. My favorite moment was when one of the residents was speaking with a mother and daughter about the holidays and the duo asked about his grandkids. He said “I don’t get to see them that much, but this makes up for it”. That is precisely our hope and for him to verbalize that we were making a difference in his day means we did our part.
