Details:

Wexner Heritage Village is a nonprofit provider of health, housing, and supportive services designed to promote healthy living for aging and disabled individuals. Founded in 1951, they have grown to meet the needs of a diverse community of adults through a wide range of services including home health and wellness, subsidized housing and related services for low-income older adults, housing and programming for the developmentally disabled, and long-term and memory care.

 

Join Besa and Wexner Heritage Village to support local seniors by beautifying their garden!  The garden serves as space for seniors to get fresh air and exercise. As a volunteer, you'll help with weeding and planting, as well as light cleaning of outdoor furniture. Supplies, including tools and gloves, will be provided.

 

Volunteers are required to bring their own face masks and must be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 60, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
