Victory Housing Assisted Living Communities Connect Elementary School Students with Art Supplies, Creating Artwork To Decorate Residences

by | Nov 1, 2022 | Articles | 0 comments

Three communities with Victory Housing are enjoying new artwork thanks to the efforts of area elementary school students. This project, conducted by Bartholomew House, Byron House, and Raphael House, connected the students of St. Bartholomew Catholic School, Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School, and St. Raphael School to the residences in a colorful and creative way.

At all three schools, each student was given a new box of Crayola crayons and a coloring page to take home and return once they had completed their artwork. More than 800 students participated. The coloring pages were then taken to the three communities and hung all around for residents to enjoy.

Victory Housing has focused on intergenerational programming, and through efforts such as the “welcome back to school” coloring project, is connecting seniors with children throughout Maryland. Future programming will include the students showcasing their costumes in a Halloween parade and Christmas caroling for the holiday season.

Additionally, Victory Housing is proud to announce that this winter they will bring back a beloved tradition, the Holiday Open House, for the first time since 2019. These popular events will feature holiday music on the piano, dancing, and a festive buffet. The events will take place at each community throughout the holiday season.
