Sharing Kindness through Literature with Seniors

Once a month, Castlewood’s Kindness Committee visits Centerlight Senior Center to spread kindness to the seniors that spend their days there. These senior-junior relationships have brought great joy to both parties. While seniors delight in the children’s energy, enthusiasm, and  acts of kindness, the students experience the intrinsic value of performing kind acts for others and make new connections about life, their elders, and their community.

On our most recent trip, Kindness Committee members shared a book about friendship. Senior-junior partnerships than discussed themes within friendship, including stories from their own life experiences. Groups then enjoyed a friendly game of Family Feud. Fun was had by all!
