Bessie’s Hope volunteer, Tonya Lacy, began volunteering at Juniper Village Aurora at the beginning of the year to engage with the residents there. However, once introduced to Ms. Yvonne, her volunteer experience turned into a family one. Her twin teens, Resa and Rueben have also joined in on the fun, and have enjoyed getting to know and playing card games with Ms. Yvonne.
However, due to COVID-19 precautions, visitors are unable to enter our elder care communities at this time. Although, that did not stop the Lacy family from connecting with Ms. Yvonne. They took the time to write letters, and Resa, Tonya’s daughter, shared her passion and talent for art by creating pictures to share with Ms. Yvonne during this time.
At Bessie’s Hope, we are so thankful for volunteers like Tonya and her family!
