For this year’s annual community service event, ETC has selected Leahi Hospital to help restore their garden area and “talk story” with the residents while doing various activities with them.
In Leahi’s outdoor garden area dubbed the “Leahi Sensory Stimulus Garden”, half of ETC’s employees helped rake leaves, clear out weeds and other overgrown plants. It was truly a rewarding feeling seeing the garden cleared out and tilled to make way for new plants.
The other half of ETC assisted with bringing residents out for some fresh air and activity fun. You could feel the Aloha as ETC and residents exchanged smiles and got to know each other. One of the activities included potting new seeds that will then be transferred into the refreshed garden area.
Thank you to Leahi Hospital for having us. We enjoyed this volunteer opportunity and we can’t wait to see how the garden thrives!
Leahi Hospital has been providing quality care since 1901. It is one of two facilities under Oahu Region within Hawaii Health Systems Corporation. Find out more information about Leahi Hospital, here.
