At Operation GroundHUG, our mission...
is to inspire young people to get involved on the "Ground" level to connect with seniors and show them that WE CARE.
When seated in a wheelchair or living at a senior living community many elderly Americans with Alzheimer's or dementia have a stature that is often overlooked and disappears from the view of kids and young adults.
The simple act of giving a HUG, a handshake, a conversation, a compliment, a performance, or even a small gift can go a long way for a senior that may feel forgotten. Operation GroundHUG is a youth-based charity that inspires, teaches, and creates volunteer opportunities to show seniors just how much WE CARE!
Kids + Seniors = Awesome Memories!
