Residents and associates at The Manor at York Town, an independent living community in Jamison, made a generous contribution to service men and women serving overseas.
In partnership with Military Missions, a nonprofit organization in Lexington, Kentucky that supports and honors deployed personnel as well as veterans, residents and associates donated money and purchased items. They then filled care packages to be sent overseas to deployed troops.
The packages were filled with nutrition bars, gum, cookies, candy, nuts, mints, granola bars, tea bags, hot chocolate mix and other helpful items.
“It’s important to us to give back and help others,” explains Emylou Doehne, a resident of the community. “It’s fun to share our appreciation. This does as much for us as it does for them.”
“The servicemen overseas are doing so much for us; it’s the least we can do.”
“We assembled the care packages on September 11th to honor the victims and their families,” adds Jane Schreiber, Vibrant Living Assistant. “Our volunteer efforts are ongoing but we chose this day as a special service day.”
