ZEELAND, Mich. (October 2015) — Residents at Royal Park Place have plenty of options for how to spend their time. Here’s an idea of what some of our residents have been up to:
Assisting “Kids’ Food Basket”
Royal Park Place is lending a hand to Kids’ Food Basket. Every Wednesday morning, at 10 a.m. in the Queen’s Room, residents pack snacks for the local not-for-profit organization to give away. Kids’ Food Basket helps complete over 7,000 meals for local children. The organization was named the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 EPIC Nonprofit of the Year for it’s work in providing necessary nutrients for growing minds and bodies.

Hosting a support group
Royal Park Place hosts an Association for the Blind support group on the first Thursday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Queen’s Room. The public is invited to join us, and welcome to share their challenges with others who understand.
