TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Last week, 24Hr HomeCare hosted a “Wishpack Giveaway” in collaboration with Harbor Regional Center, a California nonprofit that provides community-based services to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Throughout the month of July, the leading home care company raised over $2,100 to create “Wishpacks,” just in time for the beginning of the 2017 school year. Each “Wishpack” is a new backpack filled with school supplies, including pencils, notebooks, papers, markers and the like, in addition to well-wishes from the 24Hr HomeCare community in the form of “Wish Cards.”
On August 10th, the staff of 24Hr HomeCare and Harbor Regional Center gave away dozens of “Wishpacks” at the Regional Center’s Torrance location. Mothers, fathers, children and their siblings gathered to enjoy snacks and beverages, select their brand new backpacks and read the well-wishes from 24Hr HomeCare.
“I really like this card,” said 10-year-old Natalia C. “It says, ‘If you can get through the school year, you can do anything’ and I would like to think that’s true.”
24Hr HomeCare partners with many of California’s Regional Centers to provide the highest-quality respite services and long-term care for adults and children with developmental disabilities. To learn more about 24Hr HomeCare’s respite services, please visit www.24hrcares.com or call (800) 522-1516.
