Summary: We brought a fourth grade class to the high school, and they helped us make cookies for fundraising. We then sold the cookies at a concession stand and gave the money we raised to United Ways Respite Care program. We also visited Respite Cares Day Program for Alzheimer’s Patients in Brunswick. When we visited with them we gave them a holiday party consisting of holiday foods and music.
Thanks and Appreciation to: Mrs. Shepherd and Wild Oats Bakery for donating ingredients to make cookies. High School Seniors, Jessica Russell, Shaun Fraser and Mardi Artis for coming with us to Respite Care and spending time with the Alzheimer’s patients. Mrs. Selberg for allowing us to use her kitchen to make the cookies. Mr. Goddard for selling the cookies at the concession stand. Nancy Herk-Bott and the Day Program patients for allowing us to come in and spend time with you.
should raise to 14 million in 2050.
Impact and Sustainability: All of the students, including ourselves, felt such an impact when spending time with the Alzheimer’s patients. Each individual had some type of connection with one of the patients. Whether they connected with where they had once lived, or what they enjoyed doing in high school. When we left the Day Program, each person who went with us said how much fun they had and how they want to go back. With the increase in numbers of people with Alzheimer’s there will still be a great demand for projects like this.
