Do you remember your Senior Prom? Where were you? What did you wear and who was your date? Many elderly residents living at Park Summit, a long-term care center in Coral Springs, were able to relive their senior prom experience.
On May 24th, an enthusiastic group of willing volunteers from Parkridge Church of Coral Springs partnered with Hear2Heart Outreach of South Florida to recreate one of the most memorable experiences in an individual’s lifetime. It was an afternoon filled with music, dancing, food and laughter; everything you would expect from a senior prom including the crowning of a Prom King and Queen.
Blake Silverstrom, executive director of Heart2Heart, said, “All of the residents, volunteers and staff had such a great time. If only others in our community could see and feel the joy we experienced today, they would understand their Kingdom role as alleviating loneliness in the aging population of South Florida.
Heart2Heart partners with local churches like Parkridge to recruit volunteers for the purpose of touching the lives of lonely seniors. For more information on how your church can be involved, contact Heart2Heart at info@iHeart2Heartoutreach.org.
