Volunteers in Le Mars give free manicures to senior home residents

LE MARS, I.A. - ”I love to do this, it brings inspiration to me, and it brings them happiness. It’s a family-like get-together, they love to socialize during this. And it really gets them out in a group atmosphere, talking with each other,” said Good Samaritan’s Activities Director Emily Toering. “I see that throughout the facility as we do this monthly, they can just meet other people; and it really feels like a family-like atmosphere here.”

It’s something that happens every month with volunteers from around Plymouth County stopping by the Good Samaritan Society to provide those manicures.

It’s a gesture that doesn’t go without thanks from those on the receiving end. For some of them, this event is the first time they’ve ever gotten their nails done.
