Hello everyone! Week 6 marked a large growth spurt for LHA! A total of 65 residents have been paired with us for one-on-one online sessions, and around 73 other residents participated in our virtual group activities! Shoutout to the residents of Springfield Supportive Living for guessing every song correctly in our Name that Tune game! Additionally, we have welcomed Tova, Ivy, Grace, Caroline, Hanna, Joan, Lydia, Sophie and Hannah to our volunteer team. They look forward to meeting new residents in the coming weeks! We have been featured on Chicago Public Schools' blog, and in the Chicago Parent. Lastly, thank you to everyone who has supported our cause through donations and spreading the word! We appreciate all of your kindness and generosity. Stay safe everyone!
Hi everyone! Week 5 was a great week for Lifting Hearts with the Arts. We welcomed Aria, Gabi, Meg, Ella and Ellerie to our team!! Additionally, we filed our organization with the state of Illinois and are officially a nonprofit! We have added a google form to our website where you can enter details for any gently-used tablets that you are willing to donate. We were even interviewed on WGN radio by Ms. Anna Davlantes! We met with 117 residents this past week and our calendars are filling up! We cherish our meetings with the residents and love building new friendships. Please continue to spread the word about our organization to your friends/family!
Hi everyone! Week four was a big week for Lifting Hearts with the Arts. We met with 47 residents through video and phone calls and have added several new volunteers to our team! Mia, Darcy, Chelsea, Chloe, Jordan, Kalaya, and Ellie are excited to meet with all of our new residents. If you have any gently-used tablets/iPads, please consider donating them to our organization so that we can help the residents of assisted living homes virtually connect with their families during these unique and trying times.
In week number three, we have continued to meet new people and develop many new friendships. In fact, we connected with 42 residents this past week! We have broadened our reach to many more assisted living facilities and even a home for the visually impaired. We cherish each of our conversations and feel lucky to have met such kind and warm individuals. If you can, please donate to our GoFundMe or continue to spread the word about our organization and services!
Hello everyone! Week number two for Lifting Hearts with the Arts has been a blast! We met with 22 residents, started conducting group sessions via Zoom and even hosted a friendly trivia competition for some residents! We loved meeting new people and listening to what they had to say. Additionally, we had several new volunteers join our team and they look forward to connecting with residents! Last but not least, don't forget to follow us on social media and spread the word about us to any assisted living facility near you!
