December 2014 - Adopt A Senior on Eyewitness News
A big Thank You to Michelle Charlesworth for doing a story on our organization on WABC-TV Channel 7 Eyewitness News. It aired 3 different days during the week of 12/15/14 and the response from the viewers was overwhelming. The organization received numerous donations, many inquiries about volunteering and even some last minute Adopters.
Michelle interviewed 3 ladies at the nursing home (Eileen, Mary Ann and Roxine) asking what the Adopt A Senior program means to them. They talked about how wonderful it was to get items they requested on their Holiday "Wish Lists". It made them feel special and remembered.
While the news story that aired was only 3 minutes, Michelle chatted with the 3 ladies for over 2 hours. They talked about everything from where they grew up, foods they like to eat and even current events. She really made them feel special and they were instant celebrities at the nursing facility.
Eileen said that the Adopt A Senior Organization was run by "angels".
December 2014 - Adopt A Senior in All You & Woman's Day Magazines
What a thrill it was for Adopt A Senior to be mentioned in both the December 2014 issues of All You & Woman's Day Magazines. Big Thanks go out to Bill for submitting both pieces to the editorial departments of the magazines.
We have received calls and emails from people all over the United States asking how they can be involved and help ensure Seniors are not forgotten. We even had a few people adopt Seniors for the 2014 Holidays and they cannot wait to do it again this year.
