Cable Car Caroling: From Generation to Generation
December 1, 2018 @ 4:30 am - 9:00 am
Cable Car Caroling, now a 34-year tradition in San Francisco, is a multicultural event, including Hanukkah songs and Hispanic Christmas carols. This annual fundraising songfest brings holiday cheer to isolated older adults and adults living with disabilities at assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities and individual homes across San Francisco. Last year was a sold out record-breaking success with over 550 carolers on 15 motorized cable cars reaching more than 1,000 seniors and adults living with disabilities.
Raising more than $100,000 in 2017, Cable Car Caroling funds go to support IOA’s Friendship Line, the nation’s only accredited (American Association of Suicidology) 24-hour toll-free hotline for seniors and adults living with disabilities. The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warm line of non-urgent calls.
