On Sunday, January 16, 2022, around 1:30 PM, four students from the North Kentucky Student Corps chapter along with their parents arrived at StoryPoint Prospect, a senior living home. The students intended to donate 100 face masks, including 60 N95 masks, to the facility. Included with the donated masks were cotton masks which had been handmade by the students themselves. After meeting with the manager Mrs. Emily Peck, they went through all the necessary Covid checks.
Following the donation, the students and parents accepted a tour of the facility by Mrs. Peck. They were given a detailed description of the primary operations of StoryPoint Prospect while being able to see much of the facility. After the tour, the students discussed the possibility of volunteering for StoryPoint Prospect to help care for the senior residents.
Mrs. Peck was grateful for the proposal and welcomed all the students to sign up for volunteering service if the living home Covid regulation allows later. The North Kentucky Student Corps chapter members hope to volunteer for StoryPoint Prospect on a more regular basis in the near future.
