Welcome to Project Joy! An organization dedicated to collecting devices and distributing them to senior facilities. Our hope is to provide a means for these individuals to communicate virtually with their loved ones. Our focus is to bring some joy and comfort to the seniors in our community. Our vision is to help as many in need as possible.
Mission To Bring Comfort & Joy To Seniors
About Project Joy
Project Joy started with a phone call to a nearby seniors home to see what my children and I could do to help during the Covid-19 crisis. I could only imagine how isolated and alone these seniors must be feeling. When I connected with the recreational therapist, she made me aware that the residents were not allowed visitors - not even their own families. Normally they would fundraise to acquire devices to help to encourage and facilitate family connection. I went away wondering how could I help.
"Since the COVID-19 outbreak, our clients at Brain Care Centre, who were once able to attend in-person programs are now unable to leave their homes. We are doing our best to assist clients via virtual appointments, but many do not have the financial means to purchase the technology they need to access this, and are also without a way to communicate with their family and friends. Thanks to Project Joy, our clients most in need, were connected to the technology they require for continued support, while also giving them the opportunity to connect with their friends and loved ones during this period of isolation."
