- "It's one of my many small contributions to the Good Cause. Healthy bodies, healthy souls, or so one hopes. I pick up barrels of hot soup at the kitchen, and I deliver them hither and thither-- Hill Valley Orphanage, the Saint Francis Xavier Ranch for Unwanted Children, Foggy Mountain Home for the Incurably Insane, Shady Acres Rest Home... oh, I can barely keep track of them all! It's a very big job."
- —Edna Strickland
The Shady Acres Rest Home was an establishment in 1931.
Edna Strickland made regular trips to the Sisters of Mercy Soup Kitchen, where she collected barrels of soup and delivered them to less able people around town. One such location that she delivered to was the Shady Acres Rest Home.
