Challenge continues to grow its partnership with Cayuga Ridge Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, and has been a big part of the facility's efforts to add a new Sensory Room for residents.
Challenge volunteers have helped to get the room ready, but were also a big part of the fundraising effort to make the room happen. A volunteer group of individuals from Challenge spends time on Tuesdays and Thursdays helping out in the facility, and one of their jobs was to help with fundraisers, such as selling ice cream, to make the room happen.
John Eilers-Lloyd, the Director of Recreation and Volunteer Services at Cayuga Ridge, says the group from Challenge "sold a LOT of ice cream" to make the room a reality.
Challenge volunteers also help out and spend time with residents inside the new Sensory Room.
It will be awesome for the Residents at Cayuga Ridge, thank you to all the wonderful Challenge folks you do so much for our residents every week. Special thanks to my Niece Kathleen Murcray for all her excellent work in selling Sundaes to raise money for the sensory room. Great job John Eilers-Lloyd
