HOUSTON, TX—It was a simple call to action that ultimately provided comfort to those who need a boost.
The Community Outreach Committee of Eagle's Trace, the Erickson Living retirement community in West Houston, asked residents to share their arts and crafts talents for a good cause.
Thirty-five residents responded to create 37 colorful "Hero Capes" for young patients at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. They also made 17 modesty smocks for patients at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. All of the items were distributed to the medical facilities in late October.
Ann Foster serves as the Vice President of the Eagle's Trace Resident Advisory Council and Liaison to Community Outreach Committee. She noted the generous spirit of those who participated.
"We aim to involve as many residents as possible in this and all projects coordinated by the Community Outreach Committee," stated Ms. Foster. "This is truly an example of fulfilling our mission at Eagle's Trace to share our gifts to create a community that celebrates life. We look forward to doing even more to support the MD Anderson Cancer Center and Texas Children's Hospital."
