As Our 20th Anniversary Year Comes To A Close…

carol and momAs a fiercely independent person, my mother, Mary Jane Mann, never wanted to move into a retirement community. How fortunate I was to have her live with me the last few years of her life. This would not have been possible without caring, competent, and compassionate companions from A Helping Hand who visited a few times each week, allowing me time to attend to my own needs.

For twenty years, A Helping Hand has been offering special possibilities to hundreds of individuals in our community ranging from respite care and escorted transportation to quality companionship. We could not do this without support from people like you who are committed to ensuring quality of life for others.

In celebration of our twenty years of service to the community, please join me in supporting our birthday campaign. Your tax deductible contribution will allow us to continue to match caring and qualified companions with older adults so that they too can realize their wishes.

Thank you in advance for being part of this special celebration. My best to you and your loved ones in the coming year.

With much appreciation,

carol 2
