Volunteers Give Fruit Baskets To Parker Health And Rehab Residents



Volunteers of the Parker League, the volunteer auxiliary of the Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation, prepared and distributed baskets of fruit to the residents of Parker on January 20, in recognition of Tu B’Shevat, the day in Jewish culture and history that marks the beginning of a “New Year for Trees”. Tu B’Shevat is also considered by many to be similar to Arbor Day, and some ecological organizations have adopted it to further environmental awareness programs. The Parker League is an auxiliary that engages in a wide range of activities aimed at enhancing the quality of life for Parker’s diverse population of patients and residents. New members are always welcomed to assist in fundraising, education, social activities and advocacy. Those interested in joining the Parker League are invited to call 718-289- 2292.
