Westfield sisters bring joy to Whitestown nursing home residents

During the COVID-19 pandemic, two Westfield sisters have volunteered at The Restoracy of Whitestown to brighten the spirits of residents in the assisted living facility.

Nisha Roy, 14, and Rayna Roy, 12, are Cadette Girl Scouts with JoSheWe Troop 0065 of Central Indiana and have been Scouts since kindergarten. During a 2020 troop meeting, the girls were told they needed to complete 50 hours of community service with a cause they care about to earn a Silver Award, the highest honor a Cadette can earn.

The sisters said they thought of their grandmother, Jerilyn Knopp, who lives at Crestwood Village North, a retirement community they frequently visited before the pandemic.
