Royal Palm Kids Reach Out To The Elderly

Crestwood Middle School seventh graders Amanda Ng and Jenna Brooker reached out to the elderly at Morselife Health Systems on Dec. 9 at Helen Gould’s “Age is Just A Number” art show. Ng spent Saturdays this summer painting with Gould and accumulated more than 40 paintings, which will be displayed at Morse and in residents’ rooms. Ng and Brooker helped set up refreshments and then helped transport the elderly to see the art. Gould, who is 99 years old, hopes to complete 50 paintings for her 100th birthday art show. Ng has committed to helping Gould reach that goal. Shown above, Amanda Ng helps Helen Gould paint.
