This giving season, we’d like to share an example of how CNH is making life better in our community. Below is a part of CNH Executive Director Jennifer Gray-Grant’s fundraising letter, which highlights the impact CNH has had on CNH Seniors program participant Peter Yap and his wife Linda. To read the full letter, go to http://www.cnh.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Fundraising-Letter-2017.pdf

“Seven years ago, when he and his wife Linda started attending CNH senior’s programs, Peter mentioned to the senior’s coordinator that he loved to perform, Elvis style. She seemed somewhat interested but when he broke into an acapella version of Elvis’ “Teddy Bear” she immediately booked him for a CNH event. Since then, Peter has performed at various CNH celebrations and Collingwood Days. His wife Linda buys the fabric and designs his costumes, which are sewn by a friend. The two are regulars at CNH’s Community Lunch as well as Bingo, bus trips and of course karaoke. But the performing makes Peter happiest: “I love people come up to me and saying, ‘You made me happy’.” You, too, can spread the joy and create opportunities for seniors and others to share their skills by supporting CNH.

“Every day we see the quiet but dramatic differences that CNH’s programs, services and initiatives for seniors, children, teens, youth, adults and families from a variety of diverse backgrounds make in participants’ lives and in our neighbourhood. Please help us enhance the lives of those around us by generously considering a tax-receiptable donation today. Sincerely, Jennifer Gray-Grant, Executive Director P.S.
