Celebrating one year

Thank you to all who came out and celebrated our first anniversary with us in April. Together, we raised over $7,000 for Caring Hearts and Hands! HUGE thank-you to all of the people and businesses that made this possible, especially to our event chairs and to Waves Cider Co. for hosting.

During the event, we had a silent auction, and several relatives of our guests shared their testimonies. Family like John, who said, “We believe in miracles, and Caring Hearts and Hands was our miracle.” Family like Diane, who attested that the workers and volunteers at CHHC are “an extension of family.”

Here’s to a second year of supporting our guests and their families!

Come celebrate with us!

Caring Hearts and Hands is turning one! You’re invited to celebrate with us on April 28 from 2-5 p.m. at Waves Cider Company (604 Nebraska Avenue). Join us for finger foods, live music by Zamboni Funk, and a silent auction. Purchase your tickets today!

  • One ticket, including two drink tickets: $30
  • Two tickets, including four drink tickets: $50

Lighting the night with love

With donor support, we can light up the night at Stephens Lake Park on Nov. 6 as part of its inaugural fundraising event – Lights for Love: A Memorial Event.

This memorial event gives people an opportunity to purchase a luminary to honor their loved one and help raise funds to open a home in Columbia for those who are under hospice care, in the last month of life, and in need of caregiver support.

Lights for Love November 6

“We wanted to put together a fundraiser for the community that could be meaningful,” said Jackie Reed, treasurer, and co-founder for Caring Hearts and Hands of Columbia. “This is an opportunity to heal as a community after nearly two years of extremely difficult times for many of us.”

Community members can purchase a luminary to display at Stephens Lake Park on Nov. 6 at 5:30 p.m. Each luminary can be purchased for a minimum donation of $10.

The event will include music and will allow loved ones to spend time with others who have lost loved ones and remember their influence in our lives.
