MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - A group of college students is using spring break to sing, cook, and comfort senior citizens dealing with Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Students from an organization called Christ in Youth's Engage paid a visit to Dorothy's Place in Hickory Hill Thursday.
"When we have volunteers like this, we can do activities that are a little bit more challenging," explained Ruth Ann Shelton, Dorothy's Place.
Each year, members of Christ in Youth's Engage spend their spring break participating in community service projects across the country.
"We worked with SuCasa Ministries, we got to work with Urban Farms, got to hang out with some kids," said student Evan Maines.
Even though the students were at Dorothy's Place to help, they were also learning at the same time.
