Make a Difference Day, 2017

This was our second year participating in the citywide Make a Difference Day. We even got to return to the home that we spruced up last year in 2016. The purpose of this event is to visit yards of the elderly in the fall to get to all those tasks that have become hard for them.

It was an absolute pleasure helping Miss B with getting her yard ready for the winter today. We had 10 families (lots of big and little hands!) trimming bushes, raking leaves and chopping down brush. Miss B was beyond appreciative. She remembered us from last year and was overwhelmed at all of the families who came out to be “such a blessing” to her. A highlight was being able to sing “Happy Birthday” to her! (She recently turned 90!!!) Thanks to all the families who came out in this cold weather to make warm memories!!

And thank you to our parters at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and Interfaith Older Adult Programs, Inc. for giving us this opportunity!
