Happy New Year!
We would like to send out a big THANK YOU! to all who donated, and/or helped to spread the word about our seasonal holiday giving program Operation Holiday Hearts. It was a very successful season for The Heart of Ida. We served over 738 seniors, with gifts still being delivered throughout the first few months of 2016. Thank you to all who helped make deliveries for us, all of those who participated in our Kids Card Making Party, everyone at our Wine Tasting Fundraiser, and all who donated online or in person. We also want to thank George Washington Middle School for making beautiful handmade cards, singing carols and donating gifts to the residents of Long Beach Acute. The lovely ladies from Mary Kay who made beautiful baskets for the residents of the Bella Vista. The California Conference for Equality and Justice for bringing handmade cards and spreading holiday cheer to 93 residents at Broadway by the Sea nursing home. And we can't forget the awesome ladies from the Long Beach Hookers. Their donated hats, scarves, and blankets were beautiful, and the seniors loved them.Thank you ladies!
We appreciate all of you for helping out seniors in need in our community.
A special note of thanks goes out to Laura Doyle. She did an amazing job helping The Heart of Ida with raising money, planning and implementing new ideas, taking pictures, delivering gifts, and several other tasks for Operation Holiday Hearts. We could not have made it through this holiday without her.
We are so thankful for these wonderful Mary Kay reps who donated beautiful gift baskets this year.
