The Holiday Project
The Holiday Project Adopt-A-Home School Project was designed to encourage students to begin volunteering at an early age.
In the project, an educational institution is matched up with a geographically convenient long term care facility. A representative from the educational institution (which can be either an educator or a student) works with the Activities Department at the facility to schedule one or more Visits.
During Visits, volunteers spend time with residents. They offer needed conversation and companionship and they can even bring holiday cards and/or gifts. More often than not, volunteers walk away with the experience that they not only gave a special gift but they got a greater one in return.
