Thanksgiving is a special time where families gather to remember recent events and spend time together in a very fast paced world. Unfortunately, many of our elderly citizens that are in facilities due to their health, do not have the opportunity to travel to be with family and friends, and sometimes there is just no way for their family to get to them.
In November 2004, MCT donated money to the local Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights to cover the cost of the Thanksgiving meal as well as some special desserts for the units.
We asked some of our Scholarship recipients to join us on Thanksgiving to visit with some of the residents and share their time. We had a great turnout and the residents and staff at the Lutheran Home enjoyed the flowers that were also donated by MCT to each of the nurse’s stations.
