Americorps Partners with Local Senior

Jean Clark Flower Bed 7-8-15The AmeriCorps NCCC Silver 6 team recently jumped in to beautify a neighborhood and partner with local resident, Jean Clark. Jean is the secretary at Coalville’s Senior Center and a caregiver for family members. With all of her responsibilities, Jean has little time or energy left to handle major yard work. When we visited the Senior Center to find community service opportunities for AmeriCorp, Jean asked for assistance in planting her flowers. It was a collaborative effort with Jean’s daughter, Nora, drafting up the flowerbed pattern. Jean does so much for our senior citizens, we are glad she is a recipient of AmeriCorps service!
