Senior Care Donates to Head Start Program
Students at the Embarras River Basin Agency (ERBA) Head Start Program in Paris, Illinois recently received donations from staff and group members at Senior Care, a department of Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center. Connie Rhoads, primary therapist at Senior Care, pictured second from the right in the back row, presented a $200 check to Theresa Campbell, Head Start family advocate. The students will use the donation for a year-end field trip to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. Senior Care staff and group members also donated a jar containing $105 for the children to do something special as their school year ends.
“Our seniors wanted to provide the financial means for a fun and educational experience for these children who would not otherwise be able to go on the field trip,” said Jane Furry, RN, Senior Care manager. It’s a great feeling for our seniors to contribute to the community and help this generation of children.”
