We are blessed to have a beautiful Life Enrichment Center with soaring ceilings, but Healthcare Center residents struggle to understand their neighbors, families, chaplain, and staff due to the terrible acoustics in the space.
We have tried our best with homemade sound panels but to no avail. So, this year, we are raising funds for acoustic tiles to reduce the chance of depression, anxiety, isolation, & loneliness. Residents deserve a positive experience during dining, worship services, and entertainment events.
Residents Can’t Fully Understand Worship Services
One of our faithful spiritual volunteers says:
“It is such a blessing to have the opportunity to share a devotion with the residents of Sayre Christian Village. We grow together in God’s Word and laugh together about stories from the past. However, when I am speaking into the microphone, it is common for a resident to say they are having difficulty hearing me. If we could improve the acoustics, I believe the engagement level for the residents will increase.” – Ethan Stivers, Pastor at Center Point Church
The residents long to hear God’s Word. Will you help them?
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25
“Can You Hear Me Now?” Project
The plank flooring in the space intensifies communication barriers that the carpet masked before. Professional acoustic panels will resolve the communication problem.
Help us provide the best life for all, including the many with hearing impairment.
The cost for the acoustic panels for a space of this size and the unique ceiling is steep, but we have momentum in our favor! Sayre families, supporters, and staff raised $14,012 during the 2022 GoodGiving Challenge in early December 2022 to make a nice dent in the funds needed.
