Lauren, an enthusiastic student of Social Work, started her practicum term with HCM in August of 2018.  Through hands-on learning of our Assistance Program and Senior Outeach Program, she has become enchanted with our senior clientele, and came up with a way to preserve their memories to pass on to their children and grandchildren.

Lauren will begin conducting interviews with some of our senior clientele that live at Highlands Court Apartments, and record their precious memories.  To save them and pass on to family members, she will copy the recordings onto a customized, USB Memory Direct flash drive.  The clients will then be able to present the flash drive to their family members as a unique, once-in-a-lifetime present.

Through the non-profit technology partner, TechSoup, HCM was able to connect with USB Memory Direct, who, upon learning of this project, offered to sponsor it and provide HCM and Lauren with 25 customized USB flash drives. We were given a choice of many styles to choose from, and the option to have our logo printed on them.  The end product is a high-quality, easy-to-use and hard-to-lose item that will provide years of joy to those who will receive one.  

HCM is grateful for this wonderful opportunity to provide our Senior clientele with a precious gift to pass on to their loved ones.

Thank you to Lauren, Becky, and USB Memory Direct!
