Review for The Holiday Project, Martinez, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered for a while for a nursing home in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I can't express enough the rewards you get from doing this. The looks, interests, smiles and love that you feel from spending time with this wonderful people. They just love to talk and share their stories of their lives with you. Some of them don't have family at all and some of them just don't have family close by. So they light up with you come to visit. They can tell you care. We made cookies, Santa came with us at Christmas, sang lots of Christmas music, and one time one of the volunteers brought her Therapy Dog. When I asked for volunteers it was amazing how people reached out.....The Therapy Dog came from Alexandria. It was one of the best things I've ever done.
