We are continuing our live and virtual programming this winter and spring, with both educational and service programs for youth.
We ask that all of our cherished volunteers and program participants take care to keep themselves and their neighbors as safe and healthy as possible. When attending our programs, you must be willing to comply with all organizational, facility, and governmental health and safety protocols and requests.

Nursing Home Visits

From 2009-2020, our visits took place monthly, usually on the first Saturday of the month. Since the onset of Covid-19, we have had small drop-off visits at which we bring flowers and donations to the residents. We are returninig to regular monthly visits the year.

If you wish to send greetings to the residents, send your cards and notes in care of Belkys Rodriguez, Regents Park of Sunrise 9701 W. Oakland Park Blvd. Sunrise, FL 33351.

The facility has reopened to visitors. They are always in need of clothes, books, games, and puzzles for the residents. If you would like to make a donation, or join us for a visit, Regents Park of Sunrise is located on the north side of Oakland Park Blvd., just east of Nob Hill Road. Look for the Westchester sign. There are two separate facilities on the premises. Go to Regents Park, not Westchester. When you turn in, go to the building to the right and rear. You can leave donations at the front desk during regular business hours. Mark them for the attention of Belkys Rodriguez.
