Debbie Gann, director of Home Attendant Care founded the program in 2008 as a way to support both Whatcom and Skagit County charities during the holiday season.
“We are inviting the business community to join us in forgoing traditional corporate gifts and instead make monetary donations to local charities. Together we can make a significant impact in our local community,” says Gann.
Home Attendant Care clients, employees and business associates help choose which charity will receive the largest donation. This year the company has selected to support Whatcom Hospice Foundation, Bellingham Food Bank, Skagit and Whatcom Humane Societies, Blue Skies for Children, and Skagit County Community Action Agency.
Businesses wishing to join the program may contact Home Attendant Care for a customized card insert that can be printed and mailed with their own holiday cards. The insert explains the program and provides recipients the opportunity to select which charity they would like to support.
Home Attendant Care, Inc., a family-owned business since 1983, provides personal care services to seniors wishing to remain in their own home. They serve clients in Whatcom, Skagit, Island, and San Juan counties.
