Virtual Service Project: Countryside Lakes

It’s been difficult to find ways to serve in corona times. At the same time, we know certain groups of people are feeling a particular loneliness and isolation due to their high risk. But there is something you can do!

Once a month, through the end of year, we will have a virtual service project supporting the residents of CountrySide Lakes assisted living facility. We’ll share the love, and bring good cheer through cards, letters, emails, pictures, and gifts to help overcome the loneliness of this time of isolation.

We’ll announce a specific Sunday that we will focus on these efforts, but feel free to send a letter or email at any time! More details below.

‪September 27th: Write a letter to the residents of CountrySide Lakes. Include details about your life like the make up of your household, what you like to in your spare time, what you job is, what the kids are up to (if applicable). Think about writing a letter to grandma, what would you say? Feel free to also include drawings or interesting articles you find. ‬
