LRP Serves the Community

Friday, February 16, 2007

Students in the Leadership and Resiliency Program gave with their hearts this Valentine's Day as they partnered with The Extra Mile on a community service project. LRP participants made valentine greetings and stuffed goody bags for residents at Amelia Manor Retirement Center. Thirty residents identified by Amelia Manor staff as individuals who receive seldom visits were treated to this gift. LRP students personally delivered the greetings and visited with the residents. Zoe Zenner with The Extra Mile said Amelia Manor Retirement staff was enthusiastic about the project and overall pleased with its success.
