Residents from five Brandywine Living communities, including Brandywine Living Princeton, Brandywine Living Pennington, Brandywine Living Brick, Brandywine Living Reflections @ Brick, and Brandywine Living Mountian Ridge were all part of a giant human peace sign gathering of over 180 children and seniors held at 25 laurel ave Kingston Ying Hua International school .
With the help of the Franklin Park Fire Department's ladder truck, we were able to get a birds eye view.
The event brought together Brandywine Living, the premier provider of quality care and services to seniors, and YingHua International School, a non-profit, independent, Chinese-English dual language immersion school, to mark a global holiday devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, within and among all nations and people.
“Our residents love connecting with the younger generation,” said Stephanie Gaber, Escapades Producer at Brandywine Living at Princeton. “Participating in events like International Peace Day enable our residents to build relationships with youth and teach them lessons of acceptance and growth. Watching both generations interact is a truly rewarding and mutually beneficial experience.”
“At YingHua, we educate our students through an inquiry-based model of experiential learning. It is important for our students to participate in intergenerational programs and be introduced to positive role models with members of the community,” said Felicia Pan-Fea, Director of Marketing at YingHua International School. “Participating in this event provides a direct curriculum tie and the opportunity to learn the lessons of peace and tolerance while experiencing the lessons brought to life from history with the residents of Brandywine.”
