Details:

National Church Residences (NCR) provides quality housing in affordable and caring communities. NCR has been serving the community for over 50 years, enabling seniors to live more independently, while providing relief to their caregivers

 

Join Besa and the National Church Residences to support local seniors by beautifying their garden!  The garden serves as a space for seniors to get fresh air and exercise. Besa volunteers will help with weeding and planting, as well as light cleaning of outdoor furniture. Supplies, including tools and gloves, will be provided.

 

NCR will provide gloves and also practice social distancing. No interaction with seniors will take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are highly encouraged to bring their own mask or face covering, NCR will not be providing any. 

 

Ohio’s current stay-at-home order permits people to continue helping neighbors. Healthy and willing volunteers are needed now more than ever, especially to feed the hungry. While we have many neighbors in need, we must each take care of ourselves first. If you are a vulnerable population—an older adult, a cancer patient, live with asthma, etc.—please stay home. If you have traveled out of the country recently, please stay home. If you feel sick or exhibit any symptoms of the virus as shared by the CDC—fever, coughing or shortness of breath—please stay home. 

 

  • This is a kid-friendly opportunity, but all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Please wear clothing you won't mind getting dirty and dress for the weather. We recommend volunteers wear long pants.
  • Closed-toe shoes are required. 
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring sunscreen.
  • We encourage volunteers to bring a bottle of water or whatever keeps you hydrated.
  • Parking is available in the surface lot.

  • This event is ADA accessible. 

  • Court-appointed volunteering: At this time, we can not accept court-appointed requests.
