Volunteers in Action
The November Outdoor Work Party
crew of 60 people once again helped keep the grounds of the House looking meticulous! The volunteers were busy pulling weeds, filling the playground area with wheelchair-accessible bark, deadheading flowers among many other things. Another fantastic job and thanks to all that came out to help!
Associated Builders and Contractors
were out again this month! This dedicated crew painted the hallways in Buildings 300, 400 and the Lobby. Thanks go out to them for helping to maintain the beauty of our "home away from home" for our guests.
Energy Value Group
has graciously donated their consulting services and is working with us on working in a more "green" atmosphere. With the guidance of James Wong, we hope to make the necessary changes and monitor our green footprint.
provided and served a fabulous Thanksgiving Dinner once again for our families. The menu of ham, turkey and all the appropriate fixings were served by smiling volunteers making the day special for our guests.
began on November 21st with help of our volunteers. We had eight Christmas trees spread and decorated around the house as well as a special set-up of Santa's Village in the lobby. It was definitely Merry around here!
As always, we'd like to send a very special thank you to the many organizations and individuals who have helped us out and participated in the Odd Job Work Parties. These supporters fix, clean or set-up the random tasks we need done here at the House. We appreciate you all for cleaning the kitchens and playrooms and for setting up the Gift Shop and Holiday Party for our families.
Thank you to the following organizations:
- Archoustics West
- Foothill-Highlands Rotary Club
