iN2L – It's NEVER 2 Late        


These computer systems will allow our elders at the OES Home to be engaged, active and to PARTICIPATE in Connection with Family and Friends, Entertainment (games, puzzles and read to name a few of the things it offers), Therapy and Fitness, Mental Stimulation and Spiritual Support.


Our goal is to raise a minimum of $25,000. This will allow for the purchase of four systems, one for each of the 4 new neighborhoods. The more money raised, the more options that can be added to the system and programs; allowing for more opportunities for our elders at the home.
