WHAT’S HAPPENING: Volunteering at The Geneva Suites
Volunteering is a high-priority value of the Nemer Fieger culture, so we make it a point to offer organized volunteer opportunities for our team four times a year. Since the Twin Cities has so many worthwhile non-profits, we enjoy mixing things up and volunteering for different groups each quarter.
Last week we tried something new and visited senior citizens at two Geneva Suites homes in Edina and Burnsville.
We spent the afternoon getting our craft on by making Blessing Trees, playing Bingo, having a snack and doing a lot of chatting. While the age and capability levels of the residents ranged quite a bit, we truly enjoyed getting to know all of them and sharing stories. Some of the senior citizens did not have family nearby, so they really appreciated having visitors and visiting with us.
All in all, it was a meaningful way to spend a Friday afternoon and serve our community!
