LOCAL KIWANIS CLUBS VISIT
ACHIEVE REHAB & NURSING FACILITY
The Kiwanis Clubs of Monticello and Woodridge joined forces once more
to bring cheer to the residents at Achieve Rehab and Nursing Facility in
Liberty, New York.
They presented little gifts and greeting cards to Achieve Administrator
Akiva Shapiro, Director of Nursing Tisha Runyan and Director of Therapeutic
Recreations Mary Daniels-Gandy. The gifts included an assortment of solar dancer
figures, sun hats, sun glasses, plants, coloring books, Find the Word and crossword
puzzles, body lotion, playing cards, diaries and little fans.
Members from the Kiwanis Clubs, the Monticello High School Key Club,
Fallsburg Elementary School K-Kids, as well as the Aktion Club of Sullivan County,
comprised of individuals from Arc Greater Hudson Valley, New Hope Community
and The Center for Discovery, contributed a large amount of beautifully hand-made
greeting cards to be distributed with the gifts.
The main mission of this project was to give back to the community by bringing a
little enjoyment to the recipients and letting them know that people were thinking of them.
