Hello! We're so excited to celebrate our 10 month mark! We're so close to our 1 year mark, In the past two weeks, we've been working on some exciting new projects and received our first grant! Look out for some announcements soon!
Hey there, we hope you're doing well, staying healthy and staying safe. So sorry we missed you last week, but on the bright side, this is our first post of 2021! We hope this new year brings you and your loved ones joy, love and lots of smiles. One positive note is that in the past two weeks, many of our senior friends have received their first dose of the COVID vaccine! We're counting down the days until we are able to meet all of our virtual friends for in-person visits! Also, moving forward, we will be posting our weekly blog posts every other week. See you after week 40!
Hi there! It's hard to believe that this is the last week of 2020 and the end of our 9th month of connecting seniors and youth!! Last week, we held our winter holiday concert. You can watch all of the recorded performances at the link: https://youtu.be/zUdqP6Ky6rw. 2020 has been a year filled with loss and sorrow, but also hope. In 2020, we've participated in quarantines and shutdowns, worn masks and face shields, learned vocabulary like contact tracing and social distancing. We've witnessed the heroism of healthcare workers, essential workers and teachers, the creativity of restaurants, performing arts groups and our communities, as well as the hard work of scientists around the world with their efforts to create vaccines and treatments against COVID-19. In the midst of this different year, we at LHA have been lucky enough to help facilitate the creation of hundreds of intergenerational friendships. We have cherished each of our 2,288 one-on-one meetings and each of our 89 group activities. We're so grateful for all of the love and support we have received and cannot wait to grow and expand as we progress into the new year. We wish you and your loved ones a very happy new year filled with an abundance of joy, love and happiness.
