On Jan 1, the volunteer team of Lengshuitan Church in Yongzhou, Hunan went to Yijiaqiao Nursing Home where they attended the seniors and gave them gifts.

The team visits the nursing home every other month. They offer them free haircuts, and helped with cleaning the rooms and yards. They also brought socks, laundry powder, milk candies, cakes, and other gifts.

The volunteer team of Lengshuitan Church was established in March 2016. The team has carried out volunteer activities more than 10 times and sent out over 300 volunteer workers. They have donated over 15,000 yuan to lonely elders, disabled people, and poor students.
