Grace Village’s ARTcare Program Receives Donation
Grace Village Retirement Community announced it received a $10,000 donation made in memory of Doris and Harold Strange from their children Robert (Debra) Strange and Barb (Mark) McCollom.
These funds will support the ARTcare therapy program by providing for a wide variety of supplies, allowing Grace Village to accommodate more residents and grow the program through use of different mediums.
Harold and Doris’ children wished to support the ARTcare program that, under the leadership of Michael Conley, provided their parents with a “wonderful avenue to use and develop their artistic talents and was a blessing in their lives,” according to a release from Grace Village. They also expressed their gratitude to Conley for the kindness he showed to their parents and all the residents at Grace Village and said, “the family will cherish the artwork that they produced.”
The Grace Village ARTcare program provides art therapy to residents for increased physical, mental and emotional health benefits. One goal of the program is to encourage families and friends to join their loved ones, working side-by-side which offers them time away from the routines and challenges of living in healthcare.
