Shelton resident wins honor from Valley United Way

Carol Osgood

SHELTON - Wesley Heights resident Carol Osgood recently received the Living Treasure (65+) award from the Volunteer Center of Valley United Way, "Celebrating People in Action." 
The award was presented at the Valley United Way office in Shelton.

Carol and her husband, Doug, have lived at Wesley Heights for four years and from the day she moved in became an active member of the Wesley Village community.  

Carol volunteers at the Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center café, is a personal shopper for residents, fills in at the Wellness Center, plays piano for the residents at Bishop Wicke, Wesley Heights and Crosby Commons Assisted Living communities and accompanies the Wesley Heights chorus. She recently initiated a program at Wesley Heights where the residents gathered and sewed sleeping bags for the homeless.

Carol recently developed a new program for the residents at Wesley Heights called, "Songs at Eventide" that provide a source of inspiration and fellowship for the residents while reinforcing the bonds that tie the community together.

Her huge heart is always there when you need her, and she goes above and beyond for all residents on the Wesley Village campus.
