Caroling for a Cause

More than 25 linkAges TimeBank members and their families and friends brought holiday cheer to patients and staff at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View during our Caroling for a Cause on December 10. The caroling group visited hospital hallways to sing popular holiday favorites and hand out peppermint treats to hospital staff. A few patients even invited carolers into their rooms for a special performance.

The group ended the night with a festive feast at the home of fellow TimeBank member Libby B. Members shared holiday stories over a delicious spread which included spinach souffle pies, quesadillas, turkey meatballs, holiday cookies, hot chocolate and hot cider.

This event was also special because for each person who participated, our team donated one hour to the linkAges TimeBank Community Fund. Community Fund hours go directly towards supporting members with additional needs, such as a member who is recovering from a surgery or a fall.

In total, carolers and their friends and families contributed nearly 30 hours to the Community Fund.

30 TimeBank hours were donated to the Community Fund – a gift that keeps on giving

Thank you to our hosts and to everyone who brought their singing voices and holiday spirit to the event.
