TOP students visit residents at Lima Manor
Several of our TOP (Teen Outreach Program) students took time during their last service project to visit with the residents at The Lima Manor. The group played bingo and made crafts. The students also made prizes that were given to the residents, including blankets, beaded brooch pins and slipper socks. Thank you to the Teen Outreach Coordinator Caitlin Purdom at The YMCA for assisting with coordinating this and all the TOP projects for our students.
