The Holidays are fast approaching and with it, the end of 2020.
Here at Coming Home Connection we have a lot to be grateful for. We have accomplished a lot, in spite of CoVid keeping us locked down! Coming Home has continued to provide in home care for more than 40 clients through out the year and we have provided end of life care for 21 residents. Our equipment loan program has thrived. To date we have lent out nearly 600 pieces of equipment, including equipment to Operation Bandana, specific to Navajo Elders! Our volunteer program is still offering help for those who may not be able to afford care. And our intern, Sierra, helps people navigate services and programs, getting them the help they need during these trying times.
Our Dia de los Muertos celebration had to be online, but it was still so much fun. We had Rob Martinez telling us about the cultural significance of the holiday, cooked pumpkin ravioli with Johnny Vee and Mariachi Azteca played traditional songs.
Though the pandemic has been challenging for us all and we are so tired of social distancing and isolation, Coming Home is looking forward to a new year and an eventual return to normal. Watch for our spring Sweepstakes, art walk and more cooking with Johnny! Our equipment lending program is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11am to 2pm.
We are always on the lookout for people who may have time to volunteer and we definitely need new caregivers! If you are interested in one of these positions, give us a call at 505-988-2468 and ask for Barbara.
It will be 2021 before you know it and tax time is right around the corner. Save on 2020 taxes by including Coming Home Connection as part of your end of the year giving. It’s easy to make a donation and every little bit helps us provide services to area seniors and those in need of loving and compassionate care.
Coming Home sends our best wishes for you and your loved ones over this holiday season!
Warmly, JoDee Powers
