As Viviana De La Rosa, 10, crafted alongside residents at a Belmont Village workshop hosted by Giving Artfully kids, connections formed naturally.
Viviana’s cat sweater sparked a discussion about a resident’s cats. A resident and Viviana learned they both had participated in Girl Scouts.
Sitinee Sheffert said she discovered her own love of crafting when her children were young, and she wanted to share that love with other organizations who served those in need. After noticing there weren’t many resources where people could connect their craft to a charity it could benefit, Sheffert began her own website, Giving Artfully (www.givingartfully.com).

Belmont Village Burbank resident with ALS welcomes adrenaline rush from 100-mph laps around racetrack
Michael Long was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2015 and has since lost the ability to take part in activities he loved doing.
A self-professed adrenaline junkie, the 59-year-old Burbank resident had always found himself outdoors. He was an avid skier, ran a hiking club and backpacked often, but his disease has progressed to the point where he has become a quadriplegic.
This past Sunday, officials at Belmont Village of Burbank — the assisted and senior-living facility where Long resides — surprised him with a trip to Irwindale Speedway, where he was taken on a 10-lap ride-along in a race car used in stock-car racing.

To take a deep dive into this trend, tune in to the latest episode of Transform. You’ll hear from Patricia Will, CEO of Belmont Village, and Bob Turner, a development management consultant for Otterbein SeniorLife.
