Building on a successful year of giving in 2021, the residents of Clarendale of St. Peters kicked off 2022 by once again embracing a love for helping their neighbors.
“It’s heartwarming,” says Mark Golliday, Executive Director. “Our residents are always looking for opportunities to give back. They’re passionate about it. In fact, enthusiastic volunteers from our independent living, assisted living and memory care neighborhoods had already tackled two projects before the end of January!”
Baby Blankets. Bright and colorful, the residents created fleece tie blankets for children at the St. Louis Crisis Nursery. Clarendale of St. Peters volunteers simply thought it was their way of wrapping the kids in a warm hug.
Comfort Mats. Clever and resourceful, the residents refashioned grocery bags into comfort mats for the homeless. It was a kind, useful way to support community friends in need—and also a thoughtful, environmentally-friendly way to recycle.
According to Golliday, “I’m always surprised by their creativity and generosity. I want our senior living community to be a good steward of the neighborhood in which we live and work. Clarendale of St. Peters residents and staff voluntarily throw their hearts into doing that every day.”
