Volunteers in PBHA’s HARTZ program create fun art projects with nursing home residents. For this virtual school year, volunteers will be having weekly video call conversations with residents while completing virtual art activities together.

PBHA’s HARTZ program sends volunteers to visit nursing home patients as a group and entertain the residents by playing bingo, leading art classes, coordinating outings to Boston landmarks, and planning holiday-themed parties.

The Cambridge Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a 10-15 minute walk from Harvard Square. HARTZ volunteers serve from approximately 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Saturdays.
