Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by why we get, but we make a life by what we give.” At Garden Spot Village generosity overflows. A spirit of abundance fuels the community and people give generously through a Making-a-Difference.

Making-a-Difference is a monthly collection of material items for local non-profit organizations. To participate, place donations in the barrel located in the apartment suites lobby. Call Life Enrichment at 717.355.6007 to learn more.
