Delighted young faces. That is what the Mother's Day Jewelry program is all about. For the second year in a row, Homestead Village residents held a jewelry program for Schreiber Pediatric families so that the children and young adults at Schreiber could surprise their mothers with a beautiful gift on Mother's Day.
Created by Barbara Butzer, Resident Council President, the Mother's Day Program blessed and delighted patients, family and staff at Schreiber. According to Barbara, "We began setting up Monday night, and then opened the doors for six hours for children on Tuesday. We then came back again on Wednesday to meet the demand." Barbara is so appreciative of the hard work and dedication of Homestead Village residents who donated many hours of their time to the project. Just as important are all the residents who donated their personal jewelry which was truly the key to the program's success.
Barbara remarked, "Our residents' have been so generous, we have enough jewelry to hold a couple more Mother's Day events!" While Barbara's term as Homestead Village Resident Council President is coming to an end, her impact on life at Homestead Village has been remarkable.
