Seasonal Spirit- During the holiday season, residents make wreaths for the Greening of The Parke, give gifts to families of Worcester GOLD (Giving Other Lives Dignity), and donate toys to Toys for Tots. In the past, we did cookie exchanges and decorated trees for the Festival of Trees fundraiser to benefit a local charity.
