Beauty in Color at Canterbury Gardens

Canterbury Gardens is a low-income assisted living facility in Aurora.  Each month, the Volunteers in Action office staff visits residents at Canterbury Gardens that don’t get many visitors.  We’ve developed special relationships with these individuals, sharing in their hobbies and interests over the years.  Often at facilities like Canterbury Gardens, residents are simply seeking friendship; someone to share with, someone to listen to their life stories, someone to laugh with, someone to hold their hands and pray with them.  Joan, one of our friends at Canterbury Gardens, loves to color with bright pencils & markers, it’s very therapeutic for her.  These brightly colored pictures hang all around her residence, showing off her artistic expression.  If you have any adult style coloring books, pencils, markers, or  sharpeners, we can share them with several of the folks that we visit at Canterbury Gardens.   Please call 303-713-9144 for more information on donating art supplies for our friends, we can assure that they will be appreciated!
