On behalf of the activities department at Pleasanton Nursing and Rehab Center (PNRC), we would like to thank and acknowledge the amazing coordinators and volunteers of Amador Valley Assistance League (ALAV) for helping us bring more joy into our residents’ lives throughout the year.
The gift donations and facilitation of special events for significant holidays — i.e. Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, etc. — have truly made a difference in their lives. Holidays can be especially lonely for our residents sometimes. Receiving cards, letters, gifts, and coordinating social gatherings enable our residents to feel “at home” surrounded peers and staff who love them just as much as their own loved ones.
Words cannot describe the smiles, gratitude, appreciation, and acknowledgement our residents display during key holiday celebrations. We thank you AVAL for your continued outreach and support. You really do make a difference!
— Stacey Boothe, activities director, PNRC
