I’m writing to you, our neighbors and closest friends, because I need your help.
You have an opportunity to make a deep change in the lives of some 350 people, neighbors, friends, and possibly even family members, who are counting on you for help. They are the frail and elderly… and people with Alzheimer’s who are patients at Cobble Hill Health Center, located at 380 Henry St.
I promise, I won’t ask for anything you can’t afford. Hey, it’s even tax-deductible! And it won’t take more than a few moments of your time to help.
As you know, there have been many cuts to healthcare funding and they are getting more serious every week. Some of our neighboring health care providers have even had to close their doors!
What you may not know is how these cuts have affected our patients and residents here at Cobble Hill Health Center.
Now don’t worry…their health care and the activities they participate in now, haven’t been affected. We’re still providing them with top quality care and a lot of needed attention.
But we would like to do more…a lot more, when it comes to programs and activities that help our patients enjoy life.
We want to expand our Horticulture Program so more patients can participate. And, we wish we had more resources for our Adopt-a-Grandparent program.
If we had the funding, we could purchase more Ipods for our Music and Memory program… … and pay for transportation so more of our patients could visit the museum or Brooklyn Bridge Park.
These may sound like small, simple things. But to our patients, these are the things that get them through the day…that make them feel life is no longer passing them by.
Many of our patients have no friends or family to visit them. They don’t have much money. Sounds lonely doesn’t it?
You or I may take these kinds of things for granted. But I assure you, our residents look forward to participating in these activities – even going so far as to mark it on their calendars.
Budget cuts prevent us from expanding and enhancing these programs and we want to help as many of our patients as we can.
Will you help us give the gift of a more joyous life to more people?
If you were able to just give $25, we’d be on our way.
You’ll make an incredible difference for people, who in many cases, the world has forgotten; you will bring joy and excitement back into their lives.
Your gift is tax-deductible all year round.
Help us put a smile on our patients’ faces. I’m asking you today to please give what you can.
Tony Lewis President, CEO Cobble Hill LifeCare
P.S. Remember that any gift you give is tax-deductible year round and all donations are final. Please put a smile on our patients’ faces this holiday season.
