Sunshine in a bag

ROSCOMMON COUNTY- Members of the RCCF Youth Advisory Council, NEMCSA, AmeriCorps senior volunteers, scout troops of Roscommon County, and Roscommon County veterans gathered Mar. 21 to assemble Sunshine Bags for local assisted living residents.

The Sunshine Bags are meant to lift the spirits of those elderly residents and show them that the community is thinking of them. The bags consisted of socks, hygiene products, encouraging notes, books, and a few small items to hopefully make their day.

Over 120 bags were assembled and will be delivered to Mission Point in Roscommon, King Nursing Center in Houghton Lake, and The Horizon Senior Living in St. Helen in April.

This event was a great opportunity for neighbors to get together, share stories, and bring a little sunshine into someone’s world.
