The residents at BeeHive Homes of Grand Junction had a helping hand today. Students from Pear Park Elementary School’s National Elementary Honor Society were there today to serve dinner to the residents and have fun with an Easter egg hunt. This isn’t their first time helping out here.
“We were here back in November to do Thanksgiving, so this is my second time here to do this,” said 5th-grader Braedyn Green.
The kids really love this opportunity and the residents do as well.
“I think it makes them feel good, it warms their hearts to know they were out in the community to help the elderly community. Some of these people in here don’t have any families, so they don’t get very many visitors. So, this is a big treat for them,” said Gayle Zimmerman, grandmother of one of the students.
One student in particular loves to help, but he also really enjoys listening.
“It makes me feel really good, but I like helping the community and being able to be here and listen to these people’s stories,” Braedyn said.
After the students were finished up serving Easter dinner, it was time to go outside and have an Easter egg hunt.
