Each day more seniors are coming to Our Place, which means we are getting more requests for canes; currently we do not have any to give to those struggling with their mobility. If anyone has a cane they no longer need, please drop them off at the Our Place Spiritual Care Office. Your generosity will allow us to provide the mobility aid needed by one of our family members the next time they ask us for a cane.
