Is COVID19 getting in the way of your social life? Do you love visiting relatives in San Francisco? Have you watched all four seasons of Riverdale in one week to fend off the home-bound blues? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you have a lot in common with Kris O’Keefe, a student at American River College and a volunteer at UCP whom I had the great pleasure of interviewing.
We have all heard the adage that “it’s better to give than to receive.” In fact, research has shown that spending money on others puts a bigger smile on your face than spending it on yourself. And after years of seeing how your donations put smiles on our clients’ faces, we know it’s true!
PODCAST: Lighting the Candle of Hope
The first ever podcast on UCP services tells the story of a family of 6 with two children having developmental disabilities; One with Downs Syndrome and the other on the Autism scale. The need for respite, taking a break, is how the story unfolds as they describe their situation and the blessing the service has provided. Harold and Mari have a beautiful story with wonderful relief that the UCP respite program has provided.
