Without our Gifts for Grannies Volunteers, so many seniors and people with disabilities would go without at Christmas time.
Every year, Friends for Life provides Christmas gifts for all our clients in Waco and around the state. It is a huge job to collect and prepare all those gifts and we couldn’t do it without our very faithful Gift For Grannies volunteers. Joyce Stokes and Jimmie Dyer start gearing up in late September and it just gets busier and busier as we get closer to Christmas. Pictured with Joyce and Jimmie is Rosemary Fielder, a volunteer who is always willing to pitch in wherever we need her. Volunteers also help to wrap all the gifts and to deliver them to our clients in the Waco area.
Thanks to generous communities across texas, including churches, businesses and individuals we are able to provide gifts to over 1400 people.
Joyce and Jimmie help collect the gifts and put the gift packages together. Other volunteers pitch in to make sure everything is ready for Christmas.
This year our wrapping parties are scheduled for 12/09/17 and 12/16/17 from 9:00 to 2:00 at Friends for Life offices at 5000 Lakewood, Waco TX .
Come join us on Saturday morning to help us spread some Christmas love and cheer to the seniors and persons with disabilities that Friends for Life serves. For more information contact Donna Baugh at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 254.772.7600 Ext 110.
