Home Depot-Newark’s Donation Brings A Touch of Beauty to Nursing Home

No Comments

Home Depot of Newark, NJ touched the heart strings of everyone from the volunteers of Adopt A Nursing Home Patient to the patients and staff of Alaris Health on 40th Street in Irvington, New Jersey. Mike Butler was our hero as he insured that the items on our wish list ready for distribution.

A few dedicated volunteers gathered on a hot Sunday afternoon to assist the residents in transferring and separating plants that would be part an attempt to add floral life to the outside sitting area. 

The awesome thing is that some of the residents were planting experts so we learned from each other and just became helping hands.

We sang songs, told stories and enjoyed each other. We then transferred the newly transplanted flowers outside to the sitting area. This area was bare. 

But the transformation has begun with images too many to show.

And there is still much more to do.But thanks to Home Depot in Newark and some dedicated volunteers and board members the beauty is growing.  YOU CAN HELP by sharing your resources and expertise. Contact us at adoptanursinghomepatient@gmail.com.
