Our staff, chaplain, and volunteers at GMF’s Bent Tree Apartments in Memphis, TN, are always looking for ways to create an inviting and positive community. Here are three small ways residents have been loved last week.
First, Ms. Joyce Doshie made clothes and a matching blanket for a baby doll in our community center. Our excited children play with the doll all the time and feel loved by Ms. Doshie’s efforts!
Secondly, we spruced up a fence on the property. We decorated scrap boards to add scripture and a visual representation of the verse to our wall. Each time our residents pass this area, they see beauty in the art and remember the hope found in Christ!
Lastly, these siblings enjoyed some reading time in the community center last week. This simple act of a big sister sharing a book with her brother adds positive emotional and educational benefits to their lives.
Our gratitude abounds for the little things at Bent Tree that add so much value to our community!
