Palace residents send touch of home to troops overseas

Marjorie Bonien, of The Palace Suites, spent Saturday mornings creating one-of-a-kind cards for troops stationed overseas.

The Palace’s senior living communities are paying tribute to the U.S. military, veterans and their families by participating in the fifth annual American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign.

The Palace Royale’s Make A Difference Club, comprised of assisted living residents, recently collected and assembled more than 150 Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa cards which the Red Cross will deliver to military bases and veterans hospitals during the holidays.

Each card was personally signed by club members and included notes of encouragement and gratitude.

“We’re honored to support such a worthwhile cause,” said entertainment director Pamela Parker, who organizes the service club. “Residents sent a ‘touch of home’ and were moved knowing their words would be read by the brave men and women who protect our freedoms and sacrifice so much for our country.”

The Palace Suites, which offers independent living, also participated in the campaign. Residents dedicated their Saturday mornings to creating and decorating one-of-a-kind holiday cards.

The Palace’s Kendall campus offers a continuum of care and includes The Palace Royale, The Palace Suites, The Palace Renaissance and The Palace Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.
