The Holiday Project OC
ON CHRISTMAS, SPEND A FEW HOURS WITH US—YOU'LL GET BACK MORE THAN YOU GIVE. WE PROMISE!
Would you like to bring peace, love and merriment to some Orange County nursing home residents?
Please join us on Christmas, December 25th, 2011 from @9:30am (depending on location) to @1:00 pm to spread cheer at area nursing homes.
We are visiting facilities in North Orange County—Buena Park and in South Orange County-- Lake Forest and Aliso Viego. We will meet first and then "fan" out in small groups to sing and/or talk with residents. We will tell you where to meet based on information you give us when you register-- so please tell us what city you are coming from and give us your email and phone number.
The Holiday Project is a national non-profit organization of thousands of volunteers who, every year, visit with hundreds of people spending Christmas and Chanukah and other holidays confined to hospitals, nursing homes and other institutions. Each year, more than three million people spend their holidays confined to institutions. Many have outlived their relatives and friends or for some, those people have moved far away. Life for some of these people is often a lonely experience with few opportunities to make a difference.
What to bring?
Your love for others, soft homemade cookies, song sheets for Christmas Carols, Christmas cards, etc.
We need contributions to pay for warm, brightly colored slipper socks. We are getting a really good deal from a supplier so we can give them to each of the residents. See details above under "donations".
Say YES, and please feel free to invite others or pass this along! The more volunteers, the more assisted living facilities get visitors! But PLEASE let us know by filling out our simple registration form
