The Price is Right!
For the past two years our Association Jeanne Jugan (AJJ) has organized a Christmas shopping day for our Residents. They call it the “Price is Right” – which it is, because it’s free! The AJJ fill the auditorium with clothes, jewelry, pictures and other treasures. Each Resident is given a stack of plastic chips that they can use to buy these items for their family, friends and/or themselves.
Christmas music played as our anxious shoppers got to work. Smiles widen and Christmas carols became contagious as our shoppers filled their bags to overflowing. Santa’s elves not only lent a helping hand, but danced and sang as well.
Jeanne Jugan Associates are the extension of our hands and hearts. This is just one of the many joys that the AJJ bring to our Residents. Year round they can be found volunteering in various areas of the home, sponsoring parties and special event for the Residents, visiting Residents who are hospitalized, room-bound or in need of special attention, assuring a comforting presence with the dying Residents, assisting with fundraising activities and more.
