This is your opportunity to bring some winter sunshine to a senior who may not have many visitors or to spruce up a local rec center. If you choose The Glendale Home, your shared art project will connect you to a neighbor on a personal level.

If you participate in the Max Myers clean up, you will be helping spruce up the rec center which is finally the focus of an upgrade.

Either way, we need you!
