Please don’t forget me.

Before we know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here and we have thousands of people to reach out to this holiday season — people who are alone.  Most don’t have family to remember them.  We have a program called Friends for Thanksgiving where we deliver Thanksgiving Dinners to homebound elderly and people with disabilities.  These are folks who wouldn’t otherwise have anyway to celebrate Thanksgiving.  We also have a program called Gifts for Grannies & Grandpas, too and each year we collect, package and distribute thousands of gifts to lonely people who need to be remembered, not just at Christmas but on their birthdays and other holidays during the year.  If you’d like to help and live close you could help collect, wrap or deliver packages.  If you’d like to help and you don’t live close, you can could call a local nursing home to see who will be alone this Christmas or help us reach out to more people by making a contribution.

Above are just a few of the notes we’ve received from clients.  I just wanted you to know how much this means to them.  I took their names off to  protect their confidentiality. If you would like to volunteer please contact Della at 254-772-8100 x 110.
