"I love the Adopt A Senior Program to see the happiness it brings to the Seniors when they open their gifts.  Their excitement and smiles is worth it all.  I come away with such a happy heart and look forward to participating in this wonderful program for many years."

"This program is amazing! I look forward to receiving my "wish lists" each November and have the best time shopping for my Seniors.  Knowing they are getting items that they want makes it extra-special for me."

​"I have been assisting Annye with this program for 10 years and honestly it is something I look forward to each year.  Seeing the excitement the residents have makes it such a wonderful experience.  And the residents are talking about the event long after it's over."


Mary O.

Former Director of Volunteers

"The Adopt A Senior Gift Giving Day is filled with happy surprises, laughter, hugs, ear-to-ear smiles, tears of amazement and joy and lots and lots of love all around.  The personalized gifts and one-on-one time given by the volunteers to the Seniors is just priceless."

John Peter

Junior Volunteer - Age 12

"My Mom and I started volunteering in Adopt A Senior when I was 4 years old. I always have fun when she takes me with her every year to hand out the gifts.  If any Seniors cannot open their cards or gifts we help them.  It is a really great day!" 

Shirley H.

Senior Resident

​"Adopt A Senior is a wonderful program because it make us feel loved and not forgotten during the holidays.  Spending time with the volunteers makes the gift giving day extra-special as we have come to feel that the volunteers are our extended family members. It is something we all look forward to each year."
