Tea For The Soul at Westwood Plaza Senior Living $1.5K
The COVID Pandemic has been hard for all of us, but especially those inside senior care facilities. Most activities have been cancelled and family limited.
On Wed Feb 17th there will be a Tea for the Soul Program to allow folks to gather in the rec room, socially distanced, to enjoy tea and a sweet bite. I am proposing an NPG to FOWLA for up to $1.5K so they may provide the sweets for this tea every Tuesday until WNC fiscal year ends in June. These sweets will be purchased from local businesses like Atticus, FOOD and Muma Cafe to name a few. There will be 20 teas between now and June 29th @ $75 per tea. There are 40 residents at this facility. There will be a sign at the Tea showing which business the sweets came from and a sponsored credit using the WNC logo.
Timeline
1. $1.5K Local Sweets will be delivered to the facility every Tuesday starting Feb 16th -June 29th. Signage included with each delivery.
