Members of the Scranton Preparatory School baseball team spent one day of their Easter break volunteering for the Little Sisters of the Poor at Holy Family Residence, Scranton.
During their day of service, the players participated in activities with the residents and assisted the maintenance department with preparing the home for its Easter egg hunt on April 3. This preparation included setting up tables, raking and disposing of fallen leaves, and clearing debris from storm drains around the residence. The team’s efforts helped beautify the grounds surrounding the home and will provide a more enjoyable atmosphere for the people residing there.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving the elderly of Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors to create a family spirit for the residents who make their home with them. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can thrive in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
