Hello, hope all is well.
On Monday, December 19, 2011 was the first AngelaCARES, Inc., Joining Our Youth & Seniors (JOYS) Christmas celebration. It was a magnificence event. Leading up to this day, we was so excited and once again, we were going to join our youth and seniors to celebrate a wonderful holiday. It is a great honor to have a great partnership with Golden Door Charter School. After Cindy and I spoke about joining forces, she quickly introduced me to Ann Richardson from Grandview Terrace Senior Apartment complex. Anne had no objections partnering with us. We decided to have a Christmas event!
The first graders of Golden Door Charter School made handmade Christmas cards for the seniors. Along with the Christmas cards, we gave the seniors a gift bag full of goodies (puzzle box, tea bag, pen, candy canes, and Hersey chocolates).
The kids sang two great Christmas carols. As I looked across the room, many seniors were also singing. After the carols were sung, the children handed each senior their gift bag!
The gift giving concluded then the children and the seniors took a picture with Santa. Santa sat in his chair embracing each child and senior with a holiday smile!
It was a beautiful and glorious day! You can see more pictures on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/angelacares2011
