In celebration of Make a Difference Day which is October 22 of every year A&A Optical employees spent the day volunteering at The Legacy Willow Bend.
In recent years, A&A Optical has made it a tradition to incorporate social initiatives into the company culture by volunteering and serving the community, on A&A Service Days. On October 19, employees spent the day interacting with the elderly residents and nurturing staff at The Legacy Willow Bend.
In preparation for the day, employees cooked up scrumptious pots of chili for the residents’ special Chili Cook-Off. Ballots were cast for three anonymous recipes of beef chili. The residents enjoyed the tasting activity and let their preferences be heard without bias.
With kind words to share, great listening skills, and kind smiles, the A&A team brightened the day of many residents. Hearing life stories, perspectives on life, and playing rousing games of Bingo after the tastings, the whole team felt like winners by the end of the day.
Ann King, The Legacy Willow Bend Lifestyle Coordinator, believed the day was a huge success. She said: “If we can make one person smile, than we’ve succeeded. It’s been worth it. We actually made a room full of people happy.”
