St. Isidore organizes craft drive for elderly
BLOOMINGDALE – Middle school students from St. Isidore Leadership Academy organized a school and parishwide craft drive this spring that collected more than 500 craft supplies to help older adult residents and patients of the Lexington Health Network.
Eighth-grade students Jenna Jamieson, Donovan Maloney, Isabella Sansone, Brendan Dunbar and Olivia Dorman, and seventh-graders Marissa Testolin, Jenny Hauser, Zach Barry and Henry Breyne were asked to create, develop and implement a project that demonstrated leadership in their community. The students selected Lexington Health Care after being moved by the needs of older adults from some of their previous site visits. Students from the Leadership Academy personally delivered the crafts to the facility in Bloomingdale in late May.
“We felt like the [residents could] use different experiences that are stimulating and engaging, and doing crafts is one way that their social and motor skills can be maintained and exercised,” Leadership Academy member Jenny said. “Plus, making crafts is a lot of fun.”
