The #HolidayGivingCampaign began in 2011, and each year until 2016, generating items and cash donations and supported around 30 homes. In 2017 Compassionate Home Health Care (CHHC) pivoted it’s missions towards Community Engagement program “A Community that Care’s” through our annual#HolidayGivingCampaign. Collecting items and cash donations which made it possible for us to reach over 300 homes (just about 900-1000 people). The campaign holds different events to help collect items with our local partners between Appleton, Green Bay and Oshkosh. With the support of our volunteers, community supporters and partners, CHHC’s goal is to reach at least 1000 homes (about 3000 people) a year . This past year with the Pandemic we added our #letsmakeadifference campaign (equal to our annual #HolidayGivingCampaign). In 2020, CHHC was able to reach over 3200 homes, about 9600 people. Between 2011-2016 – CHHC went from supporting 30/90 homes each year, to reach just over 6500 homes (just over 19,500 people) between 2017-2020.
Our goal is to help these individuals and their families have a cleaner and healthier start to the holiday season and the new year. Our annual #HolidayGivingCampaign helps support community members who struggle to purchase household essentials. The campaign typically runs from October-December and the most urgent items needed are cleaning supplies, personal care items, laundry soap, garbage bags, and paper products, etc.
Each year for our #HolidayGivingCampaign, we work to ensure that we reach those who will greatly benefit from our donations. To do this, we partner with different organizations to help connect us with those in need. Our partners include, local ADRC’s (Aging and Disability Resource Centers), local Housing Authorities, The Transformation House, Helping Hands Caregivers, St. Vincent de Paul’s, Harbor House, Pillar, we also work with local area grade, middle, high schools and colleges to help reach children and their families.
We seek funding to help subsidize the high cost of personal care/hygiene items and cleaning supplies for community members who struggle to purchase basic needs. Our purpose is to help provide individuals with basic necessities as many people we serve.
Home health is not age, gender, or ethnically limited, nor is COVID-19. These times will be stressful for everyone especially those who don’t always have the means for basic personal care/hygiene and cleaning necessities. decide between living in a healthy, clean space and food.
