Northhampton Convalescent Center

Crafts with residents on 4th Thursdays

On the 4th Thursday of the month you can find a dedicated group of volunteers assisting  with craft and garden related projects. For about 5 years, Barbara K and Suzzane J have spearheaded an outreach project with residents at the Northhampton Convalescent Center. Interacting with participants, encouraging them as they work, offering assistance as needed, are a few of Barbara's favorite things about this project. In the past the MG volunteers centered crafts around live plants and flower arragements, but upon realizing the limitations of some of the residents, they now focus on recreating nature using low cost and upcycled materials. In 2022, MG volunteers planned, purchased plants for, and assisted in replanting a patio garden behind the dining room where crafts are done. 


If you are interested in assisting or have craft ideas to share, contact Barbara or Suzzane and look out for their monthly email reminder.
