Loretto’s Older Adults Give to Youngest Generation at Golisano

May 10 2019

*Media Opportunity*

Loretto intern Jennifer Hurst has launched a special project with Golisano Children's Hospital. Jennifer, a senior at SUNY Cortland, along with Loretto employees and residents will be making ~50 goodie bags for children at Golisano, which will include many of the items from Golisano’s wish list: play dough, coloring books, stress balls, small toys and more. The residents will also make personal cards for each bag.

*Media invited to film/photograph and interview – Great visuals*

WHEN: Today – Thursday April 25 at 2:15 pm

WHERE: Cunningham Auditorium at Loretto Health & Rehabilitation, 700 E Brighton Ave, Syracuse, NY 13205

MEDIA CONTACT: Ryan Kanavy, Loretto Marketing Associate, 315-559-9417

Jennifer is completing her internship with Loretto’s Therapeutic Recreation Department. Her idea stemmed from interest in intergenerational connection through recreation. In addition to benefitting the children, this project helps residents feel a sense of purpose by bringing joy to the children.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!
