Byron Health Center Continues To Perform 50 Acts Of Kindness With Spring Clean-Ups

Byron Health Center continues to celebrate 50 years as a licensed nursing home in 2016 by performing 50 acts of kindness throughout the year. The 50 Acts of Kindness volunteer campaign mirrors Byron Health Center’s theme for 2016: Pay It Forward. Byron Health Center is emphasizing doing an act of kindness, out of compassion, not competition, without expectation of returned kindness to its team members and residents throughout the year realizing “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”.

The next Act of Kindness in the community will be assisting Volunteer Center @ RSVP’s I CAN Volunteer Team as residents will help color and decorate 500 grocery bags for Community Harvest Food Bank to be used for the upcoming Community Harvest’s Kids Café & Summer Feeding Sites for children.

Also next week and staff will assist with the Fort Wayne Sport Club (3102 Ardmore Ave) spring clean-up day on Saturday, April 9th, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. April will continue the spring clean-up theme as the staff will be a part of the Great Park Pick-Up on Saturday, April 23rd from 9:00 a.m. – noon. Lion’s Park will be the site of choice for the Byron Health Center team. On Saturday, April 30th, staff will bring the spring clean-up theme very ’close to home’ as they will spruce up the Allen County-owned grounds adjacent to Byron Health Center well as the building grounds itself from 9:00 a.m. – noon.
