Located on the shores of Cedar Lake in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jones-Harrison is a nonprofit senior living community offering assisted living apartments, comprehensive rehabilitation services, long term memory care and 24-hour skilled nursing care. Helping older adults live better and fuller lives and providing their families peace of mind is our priority.
Jones Harrison has reached out to ARTrageous and the community asking for help in providing seniors with activities they can do within their rooms. ARTrageous will be providing some relief with our ART boxes and would like your help in purchasing a donation set for us to drop off.
"Our Orange Party for Kids is a program typically meant to have families come together and meet each other to build camaraderie. The day has a little education and then is mostly meant for the kids to have fun and enjoy being a kid. Due to the social distancing guidelines and the CDC recommendations, holding an in-person event is not going to be feasible any time soon. We thought holding a virtual event and having the children work on art projects and share their creations via a Facebook group would be a way to build community."
