Holiday events at AHH

We’ve had a busy few weeks here at A Helping Hand! Along with our Giving Tuesday fundraiser, we’ve been a part of two great events in the run up to the holidays.

The Great Thanksgiving Listen

On November 17, Activate Good gathered a group of volunteers to participate in The Great Thanksgiving Listen, a national project organized by Story Corps. A Helping Hand and several other local organizations arranged for seniors to come and be interviewed for the national archives. The volunteers used the Story Corps app to record each interview, and the interviews are published and collected here. Please take a listen – our clients have fascinating stories!

Our clients had a great time. Most of our clients have limited access to transportation and usually have to use the rides they have for necessities, so attending a social event is a luxury. Ms. G said it was the first time she’d been out in months that wasn’t a doctor’s appointment.

You can listen to the interviews here!

AHH Holiday Party

Last weekend we hosted our annual holiday party. Clients, companions, interns, board members, and staff gathered for a festive occasion featuring a performance by the UNC a cappella group Harmonyx. It was wonderful to see everyone there, and we’re already looking forward to next year!
