NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Pelham students from the Colonial School recently extended a gesture of kindness to the residents at Sound Shore Medical Center’s Schaffer Extended Care Center.
Students in kindergarten through fifth grade were encouraged to create Valentine’s Day cards, which were delivered to Schaffer residents. More than 100 kids participated in the student government project. When the cards were completed, the center’s administrator, Susan Sales, and Volunteer Coordinator Josephine Catalano received them.
“I am proud of the ongoing community spirit demonstrated by the administrators and students of the Colonial School in Pelham. Their efforts bring smiles to our Schaffer residents,” said John R. Spicer, president and CEO of Sound Shore Medical Center, in a statement.
This is not the first time Colonial School students have reached out to Schaffer residents. In December, students from the school decorated the center’s lobby Christmas tree, participated in the official tree-lighting ceremony and sang holiday songs for residents.
