Jennifer has developed a program called “Caring Bears and Bingo”. It is a Valentine’s Days Bingo tournament for the residents of Morningside Nursing Home, while also collecting teddy bears to donate to all of the residents at the Thad E. Saleeby Center. She has been collecting teddy bears and socks at her high school to distribute to the residents at the Thad E. Saleeby Center on Valentine’s Day. The goal of the project is to bring the community together for an event to show the residents at the Saleeby Center that the community cares and has not forgotten about them. The delivery of the bears and the tournament will boost the morale of disabled residents that are not able to “go out” and celebrate Valentine's Day. The project will incorporate both the disabled and the elderly community in an event with the community.
