Bridging the Gap
“Bridging the Gap” is a monthly community outreach event that unites college and high school students, as well as other local volunteers with the elderly. STS Enterprise has partnered with Wesley Senior Ministries and their Highland Meadows senior community to create an event that brings two very different generations together for a time of laughter and joy. Students spend approximately 2 hours with the residents participating in activities such as: reading, playing games (Board games, Bingo, Wii Bowling), talking, etc.
The purpose of this event is to bring excitement and youthfulness to the senior community, while leaving each resident with a smile, a sense of love, and a feeling of appreciation. The experience is simply amazing both for the senior and the host of volunteers and community service hours are reward to participants as well.
Bridging the Gap has two main events:Senior Appreciation Day Annual Cookout
