Five volunteers from Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union spent a late-August Wednesday with us cleaning up the yard of one of our group homes for adolescent girls. Alongside Rebecca Desautels, Lead Group Homes Coordinator, and Gail Lebert, Director of Partnership Development, the volunteers took care of some much needed yard work. As Rebecca told the group, “We don’t have time to work on the yard, because we are working to help adolescents learn to deal with the world around them.”
In between raking, weeding, and pruning, the group took a lunch break, and the volunteers were able to interact with a few of the group home’s residents, who were grateful to see the transformation of their lawn.
At the end of the day, the yard looked amazing! We are so grateful to our friends at Nutmeg for volunteering their time and muscles to beautify this home where important therapeutic work is being done to help adolescent girls.
