At Cedar Village, we have an active group of residents (average age 80 years old) who live in our retirement community. This project was created because so many of them were active community volunteers. Currently, we have weekly projects and a monthly outing to an organization in the community such as Ronald McDonald House. Our volunteers plan the project and proudly wear purple shirts to signify they are part of this group. It is very rewarding for them to know they are helping others.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Cedar Village volunteers saw a need in the Greater Cincinnati community that there are many individuals at risk and in need. Through this project, they help enrich the lives of those less fortunate than they are. Many of these projects benefit children both locally and nationally, as well as, homeless individuals, adult with special needs and our troops who defend our country.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will continue to provides good and services to enrich and enhance the lives of our community members who are less fortunate.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project shows individuals in the community and their loved ones that there are seniors (80 years and older) who care about them and who want to make a difference in their lives and their loved ones lives.
