Tablets to Help the Residents of Assisted Living Facilities Connect with Friends and Family
Here at The Gathering Place we understand that it is very hard to stay in touch with loved ones while living at an assisted living facility. As a part of the community, we want to do our part in helping out by providing tablets to those facilities in need.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We operate primarily from donations and grants. We are grateful for any and all donations. We are also always looking for volunteers to facilitate activities and educational groups.
