Window Cheer at Orchard Park
Friday July 17th 6-8pm*
Saturday, July 18th 9-11am*

Orchard Park loved our chalk drawings and has asked our help again to cheer up their residents! Since residents are mostly secluded to their rooms, they are asking for help painting cheerful pictures on their windows! All are welcome, you do not need to be an artist! Simple pictures are perfect! (Orchard Park will provide supplies)

We didn't have a huge turnout for chalk art so I'd love to OVERWHELM them with cheer this time around! *Please sign up for a 30 minute time slot below to help with this amazing opportunity to spread love and cheer to our lonely elderly community! (more details on sign up genius!)
