Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Being involved in the community is a strong theme in the Clubhouse. Creating strong ties to the community in which our members live can help end the social isolation that can follow a brain injury, help members create meaningful relationships with their community, and aid members in living in the community as independently as possible. The Mill House and The Denbigh House have created group volunteer and/or work opportunities to become more active in the community.  Both Clubhouses participate on Meals on Wheels, delivering meals to homebound individuals who have difficulty maintaining a healthy diet or preparing meals  on their own.  The Mill House members also clean a local church one day a week.

 

Trail clean-up

Providing members with an opportunity to give back to their communities is an important way to be involved. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, The Denbigh House members participated in two service projects to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On their first project, members of The Denbigh House traveled to Chatham Trail to clean up the trail, and picked up trash and recycling.

 

 

“Thank you for your service”

For their second project, members of The Denbigh House Kitchen Unit spent the morning baking brownies. In the afternoon, the members enjoyed delivering the brownies as a thank you to the First Responders in the community, dropping them off at several police and fire stations.  The members of The Denbigh House enjoyed their day of service and look forward to the opportunity in the future!
