Beverly's Birthdays North Huntingdon, PA

In March of 2011, Beverly's Birthdays founder, Megs Yunn, met a young girl, Beverly, who shared with Ms. Megs that she had never had her own birthday party or even her own slice of birthday cake.

Inspired by Beverly's story, Megs decided to start an organization that provides birthday celebrations for homeless children in the Pittsburgh Region.

Hi Barb and Tom,

Thank you so much for the wonderful visit this last Friday. Your granddaughter is precious and we enjoyed chatting with you both. We also really appreciate the car seats (which I’ve already sent out an email to staff seeing who has a client who might need one), and we also are grateful for the gift cards. Those will be used in a variety of ways – school needs, new clients in need for food/clothing/etc, and birthday gift cards.

Thanks again for all you have done for us!

ELHP Helps purchased Air conditioners for their home.

They obtained a few quotes for central A/C systems, and the estimates were a bit expensive due to the fact that they have no duct work in the home (they currently have electric baseboard heating).  So, we turned our attention to ductless systems, i.e. ones that have a heat pump outside and an indoor unit that mounts on the wall.  They will require 2 outdoor units and 3 indoor units to meet the demands of the house.  This will allow for both heating and cooling, so they will get better performance and efficiency all year round.  We placed a partial order to get us over the amount needed to be spent in 2017, and the remainder and installation will be purchased this year.  All told, the total equipment will come to about $2400 (~$1600 for 2017), and installation is estimated at another $1200. 

 

Saint John XXIII Home Hermitage, PA

ELHP Helps purchased 2 iPads and mounting hardware and installation to secure the iPads for Saint John XXIII in Hermitage, PA

There are two wall mounts for the iPads so they can be secure and locked into place.There is one in the Skilled 2 dining room and one in Roncalli – one of the most popular activities room. 

They are adding NEW activity programming for the residents of the home that could be accomplished through the addition the 2 iPads.   There are a number of "apps" and programs that are specifically designed for Seniors that will be used to "help pass the time".  In addition, they will utilize the devices to further implement a "Music Therapy" program that would be of benefit to many Seniors, especially those dealing with dementia/Alzheimer's disease.  They are also using them as a "SKYPE" station that would create more opportunities for our Seniors to "visit" with family members (children, grandchildren, great grandchildren) who live outside of the area and are not able to visit as often as they would like.
