It is said “A good neighbor is a priceless treasure.” One of our East Greenbush residences is especially fortunate to have a neighbor who is not only kind, but amazing with a sewing machine! She made 20 homemade cloth masks with the hopes that it would be helpful to our staff and residents. What a wonderful and benevolent “good neighbor” response to the scary position we all find ourselves facing.

But the story doesn’t end there. Shortly after the delivery was received, one of our staff members and resident dropped off a mask for our good neighbor … a homemade paper mask signed by folks at the home. We deeply appreciate our neighbors and the concern they have for the individuals we serve and our staff.  Together we will get through this!
