December LEAD Activity of the Month

Silver Level: Service: Shining Star

Activity 4: Make a New “Grandfriend” 

“With some of your chapter members and the approval of your local chapter adviser, visit a retirement home and spend time doing fun activities with the elderly who lack immediate family. Play card games, do crafts together, teach each other new skills, make up stories, exchange advice, and build a real connection. (Take a photo of you, your members, and all of the new “grandfriends”).”

Visiting a local nursing home is a great community service project! Just sitting and talking with the elderly can make their day, and it will give you an opportunity to make some new friends. Maybe construct a puzzle, watercolor, or play a trivia game in order to break the ice. Take a photo with some of your new friends in order to capture the memory!
