It brings us absolute joy to share with you all of the selfless holiday spirit that has been brought to our Clients and their families this season.
Before the start of the holiday season, Lumacare reached out to local businesses and shared with them that we were looking for donations to provide gifts to our most isolated older adult clients during the holidays. We received an overwhelming response of support and we are beyond grateful for their generosity which has allowed us to hand deliver around 200 gifts in our community. This time of year is especially difficult for seniors who are frail and have mobility issues. The weather makes it difficult for them to travel and they may feel isolated. We took this opportunity to show them that they are still cared for. Those identified individuals were provided with a gift that will not just brighten up their holiday season, but also sustain basic necessities and offer support.
Thank You: Home Instead Senior Care – Be a Santa to a Senior Program
First, we would like to acknowledge Home Instead Senior Care and their Be a Santa to a Senior Program and allowing us to be a program recipient this year receiving approximately 80 gifts! This program has been around since 2004, and provides gifts to seniors in need. Home Instead Senior Care partners with local non-profit and community organizations like ours to identify seniors who might otherwise not receive gifts during the holiday season. Home Instead works with local businesses and retail stores to help facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts. We are beyond grateful to Home Instead having us be a part of this amazing program, and partnering us with donations from Alborne Partners (Canada) Limited, and Accenture Financial Services. Collaboratively, this group of passionate community members has made a substantial difference and we are thankful for their generosity in making this possible.
Thank You: Spectrum Health Care Foundation
As a new friend to Lumacare this year, we would like to thank Spectrum Health Care Foundation for stepping up to the plate and providing us with a financial gift to purchase upwards of 50 gifts for our Clients this year. This is a brand new relationship for us, and we are so thankful for their generosity and trusting us to make a difference on their behalf. We look forward to working with you in the future and having you as a part of the Lumacare family. Thank you Spectrum!
Thank You: Rosanne Rocchi
Rosanne Rocchi is one of those people that you can’t thank enough for their selfless contribution to others. As a single individual donor, Rosanne provided us with 60 gifts to give to our clients this year that brought us close to a grand total of 200 gifts. Not only did she purchase and shop for all of the gifts herself, she also hand delivered them to our office and gave a helping hand to get everything ready.
Thank You: Everyone!
As a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality care and services, the open-handed generosity of local businesses, foundations, and people is vital to our success. The holiday season is about so much more than just giving gifts. It is also about spreading love, joy, and kindness. We are thrilled that we were able to give these gifts to seniors in our community because the smiles on their faces were the best gifts we could ever receive in return. Wishing you all a safe and joyous holiday season and a prosperous 2018!
