St. Mary’s Academy students, Morgan and Peyton Ankrum create handmade soaps for elders.
St. Mary’s students, Peyton, and Morgan Ankrum lifted the spirits of residents by creating “soaps and notes” for elders to enjoy. They handmade over 100 soaps with lovely scents and personalized them with handwritten notes for residents to hold and read. Last year, Peyton and Morgan created a gift wrapping and note writing project to help elders give gifts to their loved ones. While Bessie’s Hope programs look different this year, we are grateful for continued support from volunteers like Peyton and Morgan.
