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.
