Slightly Off-Key Stringalongs – Holiday 2020

The Slightly Off-Key Stringalongs, our singalong ukulele troupe that usually performs for hundreds of seniors in care facilities each year, have been unable to entertain seniors due to facility restrictions during the pandemic.   Searching for something they could do that would brighten the lives of seniors, members decided to make holiday gift bags for residents of one facility who were not expected to receive gifts.  Slightly Off-Key Stringalongs used their performing budget for the year and many members contributed additional items, then five volunteers gathered in a cold garage to wrap and box and bag everything.  Each care bag includes a soft warm fleece blanket, a pair of slipper socks, personal care products, snacks, a snuggly Assistance League teddy bear and a beautiful handmade card.    To keep warm while having fun packing the gifts, the group enjoyed a propane fire pit where they roasted marshmallows to make S’mores after the job was done!
