Second graders from Helen Baller Elementary spreading kindness!

Yesterday these sweet second graders from Helen Baller Elementary visited Camas Prestige Care and Rehabilitation Center to sing some holiday songs and put some smiles on faces of some older people in our community. It was beautiful. I couldn’t help but be moved by the kids sweet voices and the smiles on the faces of the people listening.
