Virtual Holiday Celebration of River Community Residents

The holidays are a classic time for families and friends to come together to celebrate, create memories, and relax after a long year. The smell of fresh pine, the warmth of stoked fires, the holiday cheer, and the festive music played in nearly every businesses and establishments.

The pandemic made it challenging for our residents in treatment to be with the family as the COVID-19 cases continues to rise. The Los Angeles County Health Department and CDC cautions that holiday gatherings and travel carry a high risk for getting or spreading COVID-19.

Despite the circumstances, we, at River Community, still manage to make it extra special for each of our residents by arranging a video chat with their loved ones on Christmas day. We even decorated an area to serve as the zoom background for the said virtual event. The residents and staff enjoyed the festive decoration and had their photo taken afterwards.
