The Sunshine Grandparent Program

Moosehaven residents come from all over the United States, as well as Canada and England! This means that they may be far from their families, friends, Lodges, and Chapters.

Lodges and Chapters, State Associations, Council of Higher Degrees, other Moose affiliated groups, and even individuals are encouraged to “adopt” a Moosehaven resident under the Sunshine Grandparent program. This program works in several ways to enrich, not only the lives of the Moosehaven seniors but the lives of those who adopt them. Simple gestures, such as sending a card for birthdays and holidays, exchanging emails, and sending gift cards to celebrate special occasions, such as holidays and birthdays, are always welcome and can make a big difference in the life of a Moosehaven resident. Sharing stories and life’s journeys build strong and lasting relationships plus, the joy of giving extends both ways.

Moosehaven residents are very fortunate to live in the beautiful community that is supported by The Moose. You contribute to their needs and help provide friendship and support that extends well beyond the Moosehaven campus.
