When hundreds of children, adults and seniors make a difference, it is important to give them the recognition they deserve. That is exactly why staff and residents at Parkway Place, a senior living community in Houston, paused to give gifts and say thank you to all of their volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 21-27. In addition, the community is always looking for more people to lend a helping hand. From school children who do crafts with residents in memory care to volunteers with therapy dogs who come out weekly to church groups that hold services to a mother/daughter team who volunteers during special events on the weekend to high school students who give residents manicures, there are hundreds of people who touch the lives of the residents at Parkway Place.
