Shillman House Concludes Week of Service in Honor of MLK

Posted: January 19, 2018

On this Martin Luther King Jr. birthday week, JCHE’s Shillman House celebrated the spirit of service by holding a different charity event each day of the week to help improve our community.

On Tuesday, we set up a collection box for new toiletry that we donated to Jewish Family Service of Metrowest, and to a local shelter. 


On Wednesday, staff and residents made dog treats for Buddy Dog--a humane society, shelter and adoption center in Sudbury. Participants made batter from peanut butter, pumpkin, whole wheat flour, and eggs. Then they formed bone-shaped treats and popped them in the oven.


On Thursday, we set up a collection box for white socks for homeless veterans. The importance of clean socks to proper foot care is often overlooked, and our residents were eager to donate to such a worthy cause.


And finally on Friday, we made cards for kids at Boston's Children's hospital, complete with personalized notes from residents.
