Orange Park, FL - September was Senior Center Month and the arts and crafts class instructed by Kathy Payne at the Clay County Senior Center of Orange Park wanted to do a special project. The ladies decided to make dolls for the pediatric patients at Orange Park Medical Center. Dolls were presented to Orange Park Medical Center CEO Chad Patrick on September 30.
Each doll is handmade with crocheted hats and dressed in colorful outfits. Twenty two dolls were created and the class will continue to make dolls for the pediatric patients entering Orange Park Medical Center or the free standing Park West ER in West Jacksonville.
“We deeply appreciate the ladies of the Clay County Senior Center who took the time to make these beautiful hand crafted dolls for our pediatric patients,” said Chad Patrick, CEO at Orange Park Medical Center. “We value our strong community partnerships and look forward to a continued relationship with the Clay County Senior Center.”
Established in 1979, the Clay County Senior Center is located at 414 Stowe Avenue in Orange Park. They provide activities for the elderly and persons with disabilities. For more information about classes, contact Cara or Susie at (904) 269-4731.
