About the Concert
Singing Up a Storm is a collaboration between Bethacapella and the Foundation for Quality Care, Inc.
Bethacapella is a group of four 8th grade girls at Bethlehem Middle School who took their love of singing and established an a capella group in 2010 to perform in the Albany area community and for residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Following Hurricane Sandy, the group became aware of nursing homes in the New York City and Long Island region that had evacuated residents, and whose dedicated workers were personally impacted. They wanted to do something to help.
The Foundation for Quality Care, Inc. was established in 2001 as a non-profit affiliate of the New York State Health Facilities Association. Its mission is to improve the quality of care in long term care facilities and related long term care settings through educational programming, grant funded research, scholarship administration, and other leading-edge initiatives.
Recognizing that many employees of long term care facilities had their lives changed significantly by Hurricane Sandy, the Foundation immediately established a Long Term Care Heroes Hurricane Relief Fund. The fund has raised more than $50,000 to date, and 100% of the donations received go directly to workers who lost homes and belongings to help them rebuild.
More than $17,000 has been distributed to heroes already. For more information go to: www.thefqc.org/hurricane-relief-fund/. As we have experienced with Katrina, Irene and other major natural disasters, the rebuilding process will take years. The applications for relief from people in need far exceed the remaining funds available. We need your help to continue to assist our long term care heroes with rebuilding their homes and their lives.
