R.I.T. Students Bring Halloween Fun to St. John’s Home
Halloween came a few days early at St. John’s Home when students from Rochester Institute of Technology came to volunteer and help run the Trick-or-Treat Extravaganza event. Several students volunteered their time to help residents, staff and their family members, as well as visiting children from nearby Generations Child Care enjoy a special afternoon of Halloween fun!
Some of the R.I.T. students– like Taylor– have been to St. John’s Home before to volunteer their time and interact with residents right in their home. “It’s a great social interaction,” Taylor told 13 WHAM news. “Getting to see the youth all dressed up really brings them back.”
“I feel young. All the kids, all the candy,” St. John’s Home resident Harriet Weiss said with a chuckle. “It’s great.”
“People have lifelong memories of the costumes they wore and taking their kids trick-or-treating,” said St. John’s Vice President of Skilled Services Nate Sweeney. “And this just helps to create that new memory for a new year.”
