• Stockings For Seniors 2017

    We invite you to participate in our 3rd Annual Stockings for Seniors Holiday Drive. This is a very heartwarming way to bring joy and cheer to seniors who are in need, those who live alone, and those in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
    Many seniors feel sad and blue around the holidays thinking of memories past and friends and family that have passed on. Many of them receive very few visits and some; none at all. We want to help to alleviate the loneliness some seniors may feel over the holidays.
    We need friends like you in the community to help us share the joy. We encourage you to go out and purchase a stocking and fill it with with goodies such as hats, gloves, scarves, socks, toiletries and personal items, small games, sugar free candies, or WalMart gift cards just to name a few. Stocking can be purchased from local Dollar Tree for $1.
    To top it off, it would be great if you could include a personalized note, wishing them a Happy Holiday and let them know they are in your thoughts during this season.

    • Old movies
