We have seen firsthand the effects of the pandemic on our daily lives, especially within our work in senior living. Over the past two-plus years we have witnessed tragedies not only stemming from the virus itself, but side effects including lockdowns, isolation, and mental health issues as well as personal financial challenges both at home and abroad.
Given these challenges and the aftermath of the pandemic, we as an organization are taking an active role in coming alongside affected communities and individuals, thus the creation of Stage Cares.
Partnering with our chaplain Rev. Dr. Hugo Venegas and the humanitarian missions that he has been cultivating for the past decade-plus, as well as a non-profit organization called Helping Hands; we will be able to meet the needs of deserving individuals and communities both locally and across the globe.
Our ownership team has committed to matching the donations of our communities up to $10,000 annually (each). We have encouraged our staff to participate through micro-donations showing the power of a community coming together for a unified purpose. With our team’s contributions to this fund, we will see tangible impacts in the communities we serve.
Our Community – Helping Hands
Helping Hands is a non-profit organization formed to help individuals with unexpected life challenges. Stage Cares will have resources available for our own staff to apply for support via Helping Hands when unexpected circumstances arise. Cost: 25% of annual fund dedicated to our community
Yorkin, Costa Rica
Our goal for 2022 is to purchase 3,000 organic cocoa plants for the village of Yorkin and deliver these plants on a mission trip from July 1-9, 2022. Cost: $5,000
Deanna’s Kids School currently utilizes a small and antiquated kitchen to serve meals to their students and staff daily. Hugo and his mission team have designed and priced a new kitchen for the school. Cost: $15,000 ($7,000 has already been raised)
We are very excited to show the generosity of our teams while supporting missions that are very close to our hearts. Thank you in advance for your participation!
