Stuffing Party with Seniors

At the end of summer found Bears of Hope we brought us to Brookdale Senior Living, Northbrook, for our annual “Stuffing Party” with the senior residents. 30 residents came to the party. They had a good time stuffing the bears. Volunteers, Sandy S, Sandy T, Sheila, Marcia and Carolyn, assisted the seniors as needed and socialized with them.  One resident commented, “This was a good program. We were able to do something good for others instead of just sitting and listening to someone speak or watching a video. I’m glad I came. Please come back soon.”
