The community is invited to a garage sale this Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3, hosted by Oaks Nursing Center's Agape Committee, a group of members whose goal is to kindness towards their residents and community.

“We want to raise money for supplies for the residents like glasses, dentures, and other clothing items, and also give them a chance to look for something to decorate their room with,” said Linsey Mussman, LVN.

Funds from the garage sale will also go towards medical supplies like pull-ups and pads, which, like other personal items, are usually only provided for residents by their family members. Staff recognizes the fact that not all residents have financial assistance from family, so they are doing what they can to help.

Each member of the staff at Oaks Nursing Center in Burnet lends a helping hand to their residents in many ways. The team spends their days providing for the individuals in their care, ensuring every need is met beyond their best abilities.

Oaks Nursing Center recently established the Oaks Helping Hands program in which staff members organize a volunteer group to assist the area's elderly residents in need of help around the house and with other tasks such as lawn mowing and gardening.

The staff intends to do a project for someone every three months as a way to give back to the community whose elderly residents they serve.

Oaks Helping Hands' goal is to focus on elderly citizens who may not have the funding to live in an assisted living facility or pay someone to finish tasks like mowing lawns and housework.
