Connecting Kids & Seniors

We have a parent Laura who is doing a wonderful project this year where she takes students to the Esperanza Senior Apartments. Students first visit the food bank with deliveries for the seniors who live there. Students then get to visit with them (and in the process brighten some senior’s days I’m sure!).

Students also get a chance to harvest some Orca greens and take them to the food bank when they do their pickup. These experiential adventures really have an impact on students. Laura has described in depth the smiles and good times had by both students and seniors. Everyone benefits!
