The Sanibel Recreation Center and Community Housing and Resources recently partnered together to launch a multi-generational “buddy” program between youth in the after-school program and residents. On Oct. 18 and 21, children in sixth through eighth grade held an event, which included delivering fresh fruit and pumpkins they painted to CHR participants. The “buddy” program will have other events this year, including holiday cheer in December, Valentines in February, and a spring “sock hop.”
