This year, CAH and Les voix du coeur offer you a new SING-ALONG in French for the holidays!
As you know, each year CAH organizes a Christmas Sharing campaign to benefit our Francophone seniors in need. For more than ten years, the vocal ensemble Les Voix du cœur has been our privileged partner to offer a Christmas show.
This year, as the previous year, the show will not be held in person at Sacred Heart Parish. No problem! Based on the success of our December 2020 SING-ALONG, the vocal ensemble and CAH will work together again to create a new Sing-Along in French. As of October 2021, Les voix du coeur have resumed meeting in person for their practice sessions. They will take advantage of a big practice in late November to record new holiday songs for the SING-ALONG. CAH will edit a 30-minute video and add the lyrics so you can sing along with friends and family during the holidays.
We will broadcast the results of our efforts on Facebook on SATURDAY, December 18, 2021, at 7pm. Last year, over 90 people watched our SING-ALONG at the same time, each in their own living room. Since then, over 280 people have viewed the 2020 SING-ALONG on YouTube.
Thanks to our great community, we have raised $8,295 in our 2020 Christmas Share. Will the neediest seniors in our community be able to count on all of us in 2021?
Today more than ever, CAH customers need you!
In the past year, nearly 90 seniors received grocery coupons; the rest of the money was used to provide basic necessities throughout the year, such as pairs of glasses, hearing aids and dentures to improve the comfort of the most disadvantaged seniors.
• $30 allows a senior to enjoy the holiday season and buy a turkey and some food.
• $50 allows a senior to purchase fresh products (meat/fish, yogurt) for two weeks.
• $100 helps a senior cope with a particularly precarious period (for example, an unexpected medical expense) so that he or she can cover food expenses for a month.
• $200 allows you to buy a pair of glasses and bring a precious comfort of life to the senior who receives them.
While the holiday season is for many people a resolutely positive time to celebrate with family and friends and where sharing, love and mutual aid are highlighted, this is not the case for some seniors who are lonely, suffer from loneliness and live in a precarious financial situation.
This is a time to lend a hand to CAH in this difficult time of the pandemic, which is emerging as an opportunity to show solidarity and to be in the thick of things.
