Many local seniors right here in Sylvan Lake spend Christmas alone and have few family members or friends to celebrate with over the holidays. Not to mention, the pandemic has been a very difficult time for seniors in terms of their health, mobility and for those living alone and on fixed incomes. In partnership with Family and Community Support Services in Sylvan Lake, we would like to add a little sparkle for the seniors in our community this holiday season, by providing a meal and a gift for seniors in need. There are already 25 seniors who have registered for this program and are in need of help this Christmas Season.
We are looking for any new, unused items that families might be willing to donate. Sobey’s is donating all the fixings for a turkey dinner, but we’d like each senior to have a little gift as well.
- Items have to be new and unused, with tags
- Items must easily fit within a Christmas gift bag.
- If families do not have new items and would still like to donate we can also collect monetary donations and/or gift cards.
- No large items
- No Candles
We will leave a gift bag or container in your classroom for all donated items, along with a poster listing suggested items for seniors in need. We will be taking donations beginning Monday, November 29 until Friday, December 3. All items must be donated by noon, on or before December 3, 2021.
If you are able please give generously this holiday season and help a senior in need.
