Sayre Christian Village in need of donations

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Do you have a serving dish sitting in the back of your kitchen cabinet collecting dust? Well, Sayre Christian Village says it residents will put them to good use.

To keep their residents safe from COVID-19, Sayre Christian Village hasn't been allowing visitors.

As isolation continues, the nursing home has continued one thing that brings everyone together: food.

"You're hearing the sizzling onions, you're watching dough rise, smelling cinnamon rolls baking, you're tasting a cream puff at the end. It's fantastic for sensory therapy, it's also great for dexterity," Elise Hinchman said.

But the coronavirus has changed how the residents bake.

"Before, we would pass around a dish and everyone would add an ingredient, while we're talking and demonstrating. Now, that's not how we do things," Hinchmand said.

Now, every baker needs their own utensils. So Sayre Christian Village is asking for your extra dishware.

"We're asking you to not dig deep in to your pocket, but way back into your closet, get that platter, get that punch bowl set and those individual loaf pans," Hinchman said.
