In its ninth year, the Little Hands, BIG Hearts program continues to connect caring children, ages K-8, with meaningful ways to make a difference. Please review the following schedule information and join us!
Westmoreland Nursing Home, 660 N. Westmoreland Road, Lake Forest**
Regarded as a highlight of the month, the residents of Westmoreland Nursing Home have welcomed our young volunteers and families for the past nine years. Whether it's receiving a sweet smile, sharing an interesting conversation, or playing a game of Connect 4, our "grandfriends" always look forward to seeing the children from LHBH. All events are from 10:00 to 11:00am in the Activities Room on the first floor of Westmoreland Nursing Home. Children ages K-3 must be accompanied by an adult. All supplies are provided.
