Seniors Outreach - November 29, 2017

At times it is hard to have information on worthwhile programs, so…about Gifts For Grandparents…This very practical seasonal program from Seniors Outreach enables folks from Kneehill County to provide support to Seniors who may not have family and/or friends able to be involved with them at this time of year. Gifts will be delivered to Seniors in our County who will benefit from your generosity

To enable you, your family, your friends, your organizations and/or businesses to support this very worthwhile endeavor, Donation boxes are available to you at: Acme School, Carbon School, Dr. Elliott School in Linden, Three Hills School, Trochu Valley School, Peters Pharmacy in Three Hills, Seniors Outreach Main Office in Three Hills, Three Hills IGA, Town Office in Trochu, Village Office in Carbon.

We may have two or three more donation boxes out in the County this week. Please look for them. Drop off donations no later than Monday, December 11, 2017 at one of the donation boxes and any gift cards/cash donations may be made to Seniors Outreach by December 12. Any donations $20 and over will receive a tax receipt.

The “Me-To-We Club” at Three Hills School has been decorating the donation boxes and will be helping with the program, and through a couple of the schools the Gift Bags and Christmas Cards will be done up. Volunteers through Seniors Outreach and local folks will pick up the donations from these boxes December 11 & 12, and our plan is to have our volunteers do a “stuffing bee” at the Seniors Outreach office on December 13. The deliveries of the gifts will be made during the week of December 18-21, 2017 just in time for Christmas.

We will gratefully accept donations such as: Throw blankets;

• Bath towels/mats;

• Toiletries for men & women;

• Mittens, scarves, hats, toques;

• Coffee, tea, hot chocolate;

• Large print books (crossword, sudoku, word search);

• Cookies, Candies (including diabetic), crackers, jam;

• Gift Cards;

• Cash/Cheque Donations.
