God has called believers to step outside their cultural comfort zones and make a difference in the lives of others. How? It’s really quite simple—start by helping just one person. As World Vision founder Bob Pierce once said, “Don’t fail to do something just because you can’t do everything.”

Here’s one more thing you can do! You can reach out to those who are in care facilities and feeling especially isolated and lonely during this time. Presbyterian Homes is participating in the #worldofhearts social media movement and would like our help.
