During Abbeville Nursing Home’s National Skilled Nursing Home Week, the Wings One and Two challenged one another in a Can Good Drive. Their theme was “Live Soulfully “.
Renee Bledsoe, Activity Director, came up with a way to get all of the staff and families involved by having a can good drive. The challenge was that each Wing would collect as many can good items from Mother’s Day until that Friday and the winning Wing would have bragging rights. Wing 2 staff and family were the winners but together with the staff members and family members of both Wings, they collected 408 can good items.
These items were donated to UCMAC- United Christian Ministries of Abbeville County. Bridget White, the Social Services Director and her daughter, Gabriella White, who are also Miss Celebrations USA Queens, were given the task of delivering the can good items to the food bank.
