This year, the organizations behind #GivingTuesday have decided to bring everyone together for a special community giving event. On May 5th, 2020, people around the world will be spreading the love by helping their local non-profits and community centers. #GivingTuesdayNow
We at Casa Allegra Community Services believe in the power of giving and have decided to give back to our clients and community by upgrading the technological capabilities in our homes, giving family members and caregivers the ability to schedule a video chat with their loved ones.
Beginning today, Casa Allegra is asking for donations to help us bring this to our awesome clients before year's end.
Improving our clients ability to communicate via video chat will allow relatives from afar to visit like never before. It will also allow for easier visitations during times where underlying health risks may make a face to face meeting impossible.
The Covid19 pandemic has caused a great deal of stress for our community and not being able to visit in person with loved ones has made it all the more difficult. We feel that this is why this is the perfect time to join with Marin, the Bay Area, California and really the entire world, in celebrating #GivingTuesdayNow by making this big addition to our already great Casa Allegra Community homes.
Besides donations, we are also asking people to share their heartwarming stories on social media about the great clients and staff we are lucky enough to share our lives with at CACS. We couldn't be more pleased with all the outreach of support that the community has extended to Casa Allegra during this difficult time, and want to shout it to the world! So please, if you can, share your stories with the hashtag #GivingTuesdayNow and some of them may even be featured in next months newsletter.
We know times are tough, but we also know that the Casa Allegra Community is tougher. Anything you can give during this struggle goes a long way and is greatly appreciated by all of us at Casa Allegra. We will always strive to provide the best possible care and service to our clients and community, and we couldn't do it without the generosity of people like you and the community we serve.
This #GivingTuesdayNow, more than anything else, we would like to give our Thanks, once again, to the donors, volunteers, family members, staff and, of course, clients, because without all of you, none of this would be possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
