Jonesboro ADC has started a Monthly Service Challenge. The March challenge was to collect soda can tabs for Ronald McDonald House at St. Judes.
Every month this year we are challenging our clients to participate in a service project. We had a contest between all the clients for the most collected and then we challenged EastArk Enterprises to a contest as well, with the winner earning an ice cream party!
EastArk beat us but everyone did great! (Next time West Memphis!!) Thanks for sharing, Kim!!!
EastArk Enterprises accepted the challenge from Jonesboro ADC and won the ice cream party! They collected 15lbs of soda tabs. Morgan brought the most in and she received a $20 prize. All soda tabs will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House at St. Judes. Good job, EastArk Enterprises!!! ððð Thanks for sharing, Heather!
Recognition and Kindness
In October 2020, a person assigned to my caseload passed away. The person left behind a parakeet (named Pretty Boy) that had nowhere to go. I remembered that the residents at Plaza Group Home had a parakeet (named Silver) in their care. So, I asked the residential manager, Anita Washington, if they had room for one more parakeet. Anita said she would have to discuss it with the residents at Plaza because the residents would be the ones responsible for the birdâs care. Anita later informed me that the residents uniformly agreed to take on the responsibility of caring for another parakeet. Whenever I visit the Plaza Group Home, it brings me such joy to hear Pretty Boy and Silver singing to each other. I wanted to share this story because Pretty Boy had nowhere to go when his owner passed away; he was a homeless bird. I envision the previous owner looking down and smiling as Pretty Boy continues to sing his songs. Thanks to all at the Plaza Group Home for exemplifying service.
