The mission of JoyCatchers is to create and provide joyful gifts and life-enhancing experiences to seniors, veterans and adults experiencing illness or isolation, through hands-on activities, such as the JoyCatchers Holiday Tree Trim and the JoyCatchers Individual Tree Kits.
Who Receives Trees and Kits
Since 2006, JoyCatchers has been bringing joy to adults one holiday tree at a time. These are given to adults including seniors, veterans, people in hospice, adults experiencing Alzheimer’s or cancer, individuals homeless, housed in permanent or transitional housing, living alone, and adults in board and care homes and in assisted living.
How We Do This
At the holiday time, volunteers decorate artificial tabletop size holiday trees. Beginning late Summer volunteers assemble individualized mini tree decorating kits that are given at the holiday time to veterans facilities, among others, for them to decorate their own trees as a social, healing & creative community outreach activity. Throughout the year purchases and preparation of decorations takes place with volunteer and donor assistance.
