FRANK LEO & ASSOCIATES HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE 2021:
for Emily’s House Children’s Hospice in Memory of Ava
Dear Frank Leo & Associates’ clients, friends, agents and family,
Emily’s House children’s hospice is so grateful to FRANK LEO & ASSOCIATES. Last year, the holiday online fundraiser raised over $13,000 in just three weeks! This generosity enabled the purchase of new tablets to enable children to participate in virtual hospice programming (like music therapy, recreation, virtual campfires, a tile mosaic), and provided gift cards to families receiving hospice care supports who were in need of joy during the holiday season.
The goal for this year’s FRANK LEO & ASSOCIATES HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE 2021: for Emily’s House Children’s Hospice in Memory of Ava is to raise funds to renovate the Emily’s House Snoezelen Room, where recreation and play therapy contributes to essential hospice care for medically-fragile children.
An Updated Play Therapy Room: Emily’s House Snoezelen Room
The Emily’s House Snoezelen Room is both a soothing and stimulating environment used for therapeutic play and recreation. It is specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses, using lighting effects, colour, sounds, and music. While interacting with a therapist, staff person or volunteer, children explore tactile senses, and engage in a “wider world” than otherwise accessible in their everyday experiences. The campaign proceeds will enable the first maintenance update and upgrades to the Emily’s House Snoezelen Room since opening the children’s hospice in 2013. (An estimated $5,000 funding is needed for this project, and funds donated beyond the cost of the project will be directed to where they are needed most to support Emily’s House children and families).
Donate by December 14th via our FRANK LEO & ASSOCIATES HOLIDAY FUND FOR EMILY’S HOUSE IN MEMORY OF AVA and reach these families this season. (Donations of $20 and greater will be eligible for a charitable tax receipt).
