August Community Connection Day

By Claire Coté

In August we shift our focus from beautification of shared public spaces to collectively supporting the well-being of senior individuals in our community. Questa honors and values our elders and understands the importance of “aging in place” in one’s own home safely and comfortably. By connecting with youth and other capable community members, we will come directly to elders’ homes to do general cleanup and basic maintenance in your yard. Our only payment from you will be to share stories of your youth with our youth!

For further information about the August Community Connection Day and Focus on Seniors, contact: Benita Muñiz at (720) 662-9652; b.muniz3@gmail.com
