Members of the Holmes School Kids Care Club met on April 27 to complete their spring service project. Gina Blum, executive director of At Home In Darien, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping seniors stay connected to the community, spoke to more than 30 children in kindergarten through fifth grade. The children then decorated and assembled a springtime potted flower and made personal greeting cards to give to seniors. At Home In Darien coordinated the distribution of the Care Bags to seniors to help brighten their day. At Home In Darien said in a press release that the organization “greatly appreciates the support of the Holmes School Kids Care Club and the members who shared their friendship to senior citizens in the community.”
