Spokane, Wash. – At 89 years old, Frank Percy walks 2.5 miles every day. One of his favorite routes is around the pond on the campus of Good Samaritan Society – Spokane Valley where he lives. So, when the pond needed attention, Percy decided to do something about it.
He dropped off a gift with Claudia Ouwerkerk, development officer, to support pond repairs and enhancements.
“Many residents are like Frank and would like to see us ‘spruce up’ the pond,” said Ouwerkerk. “It’s an integral part of their well-being especially with this pandemic.”
The “spruce up” comes with an estimated $50,000 price tag. The generosity of nature-lovers like Frank is helping the location bring plans to life faster than otherwise possible.
