HarvestPaying It Forward:  Sponsoring Care Facilities Harvest Day

Today our church (Christ's Church at Mason) offered us another opportunity to Pay It Forward.  Thursday November 10th at noon they're hosting a Harvest Day for area Senior Adults residing in local area Nursing Care Centers and Assisted Care Centers.  The section of our church that takes care of this event is called Evergreen (a pretty cool name for a seniors group don't you think?).

So what's involved?  Church members provide transportation to bring these seniors to our church for a hot cooked meal and this year the program includes music by the Mason High School Choir. 

Now church members can participate by either volunteering for the event, or by contributing funds to offset the cost of transportation and meals.   $10 is enough to cover the event for a senior, so it was an easy decision for us to provide an Andrew Jackson to the committee handling the event. 

We know that the church will provide an outstanding time for all the seniors that attend this outreach event!

A quote from our friend in North Carolina:
"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition.  I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can.  No more, no less."  Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®

Paying It Forward,

What a nice way to provide the seniors a hot cooked meal and some entertainment!  It can get lonely at some of the retirement homes, so I know they look forward to getting out and about sometimes!  Wonderful way to pay it forward :)!

David, It's got to be a welcome break for these seniors to get an afternoon out!

Brenda, No doubt that the loneliness would set in, we're happy that our church gives them an opportunity to have an enjoyable afternoon out!

Bliz, this is really a great way to pay-it-forward.  As we gear up for the holiday season, it is wonderful to contribute to such a worthy cause.  I am sure the seniors will enjoy the delicious meal as well as the wonderful serenade by the high school choir.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi BLiz - Nice way to pay it forward! A hot meal, some socializing, and the music of a choir as well. Sounds like a wonderful time for all.

BLiz, it is nice to do things for others, and not get credit, maybe just a bit of recognition!   To get involved with seniors has to be the best feeling ever!

Lisa, It's one of the things we love about our church, they've got a ton of outreach activities at all times of the year, whether it's making sure families have Christmas presents for the kids, or the annual Habitat for Humanity event where we build the walls for 4 homes (in less than 4 hours with hundreds of people showing up!).

Judy, It's a pretty good formula for a great afternoon :)

Bliz,

Excellent program your church is involved in with this program. Mr. Jackson won't be alone in helping out the seniors this year.

Rich, I suspect Andrew had lots of company.  Our church membership is pretty good about opening the wallets whenever needed :)
