Spreading the Christmas spirit
Kimberly-Clark's Marketing and Product Development team recently held their annual Volunteer Day at the South West Italian Australian Association (SWIAA) Gardens in Bossley Park, a non-profit organisation that provides care services for aging and disabled persons in the community.
The day of festivities began with a redecoration of the residents' common room, where the team assembled a beautiful Christmas tree, laced with tinsel and bright baubles, and added a fresh coat of paint. Christmas carols filled the air as other members of the team assisted elderly patients with writing Christmas cards to their loved ones.
Each KCA volunteer paired up with one of the SWIAA residents to participate in a round of bingo - while the Kimberly-Clark team were quick to learn how to count to 90 in Italian, the residents proved too quick, taking out the games.
It was a very special day for the team who enjoyed spending quality time with the residents, especially those who were too unwell to visit their family home, or whose relatives live abroad. A wonderful day was shared by all.
