For this year’s 215 Day, Brownstein joined forces with the West Philadelphia-based Renaissance Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center to bring a smile to the faces of nursing home residents, and to help them pass the time during lockdown. All 80 residents received a copy of a coloring book designed by Brownstein creatives, as well as crafting supplies and hand-written notes from agency team members with good wishes and encouragement.
Established three years ago as part of the agency’s giving-back program, 215 Day is a volunteer event that takes place on February 15. For one day each year, Brownstein team members take a break from their usual responsibilities to dedicate their time and skills to others in the city they call home.
While our 215 Day looked a bit different this year, we continued to honor our tradition of giving back to our community within the constraints of the pandemic, sending a small team to deliver the coloring books. cards, and supplies to the nursing home. Renaissance’s team, who were looking for activity-based donations for residents, had great things to say about the drop-off:
Thank you to Kelsey, Sarah and Kiley from the Brownstein for your generous donation of puzzles, coloring books and art supplies. Our residents will enjoy sharpening their wits and exploring their creativity!Posted by Renaissance Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center on Tuesday, February 16, 2021
