Adopt A Senior volunteers bring wrapped gifts to a long-term care facility

Holiday Gift Giving Days

This is our biggest event of the year. Seniors at the facilities complete "Wish List" profile forms indicating items they would like for the holidays. Through donations, or donors who Adopt A Senior for the Holidays, items on their Wish List are purchased, wrapped and the gifts are tagged for the adopted Senior. 

Each year during the first few weeks of December, gifts are distributed to the Seniors in person. Words cannot describe the gratitude and excitement the Seniors show when they receive their gifts.

Monthly Birthday Party Patrols

Each month we go to all of our facilities to visit Seniors who are celebrating a birthday to help make them feel special. Nothing brings more smiles to their faces than seeing a group of grown-ups with balloons, gifts, party hats and our kazoos!

Hand Crocheted Blankets

We give each new resident a handmade crocheted blanket, either at their Birthday or the upcoming Holiday (whichever is first). Our crocheted blankets are handmade by several volunteers. Contact us if you would like to volunteer your crochet skills!

Special Days Gift Giving & Chats

We visit our facilities on several special days throughout the year, such as Senior Citizen Day, Veteran's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Travel Talks. The Seniors love the attention they get from our volunteers, and love telling their life stories.
