Dear Friends,

The 42-year success of CARH is a reflection of the dedication and enthusiasm that People like yourself display on a continuous basis towards our Charity. Thank you for your continued support towards CARH. It has been so appreciated from all the smiley faces from our clients.
CARH has struggled for the last few years to sustain our household recycling program but times have changed. As difficult as this is, it is time for CARH to cease its used clothing and household items collection efforts. CARH will no longer operate and collect clothing and household items.
As a result, the last day of the collection operation will be on Friday, August 29, 2014. At the same time CARH is also suspending the Charity operation for now with the hope that we come back at a later date.
We very much appreciated the opportunity to establish and maintain these priceless relationships with you over the years. Once again, on behalf of CARH and our clients, thank you for being a part of CARH’s legacy!

Sincerely,

Cathy Giouzelis
Executive Director

Since 1990, CARH’s “Visiting Cupid” program has been capturing the hearts of those we serve living with intellectual disabilities. On February 10th and 11th, “Visiting Cupid” surprised 225 clients at several Adult Day Programs by delivering Happy “Valentine’s Day” wishes, hugs, and gifts. This fun holiday is one way we can help celebrate “Valentine’s Day” with those we care about in our community. By filling the hearts of those we serve with joy, we know we are working towards our mission to enrich the lives of those living with intellectual disabilities, which makes Valentine’s Day a special day for all of us. We would like to thank our “Visiting Cupid” for helping us bring joy to those we serve in our community.

CARH’s BINGO Day participants were happily engaged in a fun day at the Michael Guidotti Center on Saturday, February 1st, when a familiar friend, Chex, arrived for a surprise visit. Eyes lit up with delight when folks saw their buddy stroll through the door during intermission. It didn't take long for a line to form with eager guests wanting to take turns greeting their adorable furry friend.

Chex, a large, huggable, Newfoundland, therapy dog, accompanied by his owner Hazel Jacoby, has been making appearances at CARH events and activities for many years bringing added pleasure to our programs. Many of the clients we serve have not had an opportunity to be a pet owner. When Chex visits CARH, the clients receive unconditional affection. Chex is well known for his big kisses and polite handshakes. Our clients have come to adore this gentle giant. Chex seems to appreciate all the attention too.



Thank you, Hazel Jacoby and Chex for bringing added happiness to CARH’s friends.

In 1980, CARH hosted its first Annual Holiday Luncheon. This extraordinary event marked the beginning of a new CARH tradition that continues to bring Christmas joy to those living with intellectual disabilities. Thirty-three years later, the number of individuals joining CARH has grown by leaps and bounds. As a result, the demand for all of our services is greater than ever. In December, we hosted not one, but three Santa’s Jingle Bell Rock Parties. CARH hosted an event in Castro Valley, Newark, and Oakland to accommodate nearly 1000 guests who registered to attend the festive holiday events. Each event provided CARH’s friends with a live DJ, dancing, entertainment by the Tap Dancing Christmas Trees, caroling, a raffle for a chance to win darling plush stuffed toys, a delicious pizza lunch, and topped off by a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus bearing gifts for all. CARH wants to thank everyone who attended and made these events a huge success. We also want to extend a big thank you to our valued volunteers and community supporters who make it possible for CARH to keep enriching the lives of those we serve. It is important to keep this tradition alive. What a good time!

CARH wants to give a huge thank you to All-Guard Security Systems in Hayward for adopting us as one of their charities. By including us as a recipient of their Holiday Donation Drive, they have helped to spread yuletide cheer to those we serve living with intellectual disabilities. All-Guard Security Systems Marketing Manager, Bettina Skehan, spearheaded the drive. She wanted to bring the All-Guard team together and celebrate the holidays by giving back to the community. The donation drive was a huge success. Thank you, Bettina, and all of the wonderful All-Guard staff for making seasons bright for so many special individuals. Your holiday collection was a great
benefit to our organization and those we serve.

Over the holidays, you may have received gift cards for stores, restaurants, and entertainment that you do not need. By donating your unused gift cards to CARH, you will support our Birthday, and Wish program that help enhance the quality of life for those living with special needs. So if your gift cards are not being used, please donate them to CARH and don’t forget, it’s tax deductible too! For more information about CARH’s programs call 510-537-6611.

CARH has been making the Holiday Season brighter for the past forty-one years for so many adults and children with intellectual disabilities. Our Holiday programs and events throughout December allow us to bring smiles of joy during this special time of year. CARH’s Visiting Santa Program provides those we serve a surprise visit from Santa and his helpers bearing wonderful gifts for everyone. In order to accommodate the many requests for Santa visits; during a two week period CARH Santa’s will have visited over 30 day programs for the developmentally disabled in Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano Counties. With a number of the facilities having upwards of 100 participants it certainly gives “The Big Guy in Red” a lot of Yuletide cheer to spread around. When Santa enters a facility he is greeted with beaming faces, cheers of excitement and big hugs as he personally delivers each gift with a Happy Holiday greeting. The broad smiles say it all! It is the joy we bring to those we serve that inspires all of us to want to keep this CARH tradition alive making sure that no one is forgotten. This year Santa visited a total of 1,782 CARH friends. We would like to thank Santa our community donors, our very special Santa Sew Volunteers, Community Integrated Work Program (CIWP) in Hayward and Redwood Place-Telecare Corp for helping make our Holiday program a huge success. Happy Holidays!!

Donations Roll in for CARH’s Dental Hygiene Program

A huge thank you goes out to a wonderfully generous donor; who would like to remain anonymous, for donating $3,000 to CARH Mobile Dental Hygiene Program. Thanks to you many of our clients will be able to continue to receive free preventative dental care.

Thank you for adopting CARH as your charity and for caring about those we serve with special needs.

Another huge thank you goes out to St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Danville for their generous donation of $2,500 in support of our dental program as well. For the past 4 years St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church Outreach Ministry has selected CARH as one of their annual recipients of this generous grant as part of their outreach program in their efforts to help those in need outside of their own community. Thanks to the generosity of these two donors CARH’s 2014 Mobile Dental Hygiene Program is well on its way in providing healthy smiles on our clients.
