Stockings for Seniors
Organized by: Kimberly McCormick
This is our 3rd year of providing holiday goods to senior citizens in our community. We work closely with the YWCA, and they determine who will benefit the most from our giving.
It is our intent to provide for at least 50 seniors this year, so it truly is important to start now.
Funds raised will help purchase the following items for each recipient:
Journals or Puzzle Books
Small Calendars for 2017
Soft, Fuzzy Socks
Kitchen Dish Soap
Kitchen Dish Cloth & Towel
Bath Towel, Hand Towel & Wash Cloth
We try to provide kitchen and bath soap because many of our seniors do not have the funds to purchase these items, and based on feedback from our 2015 outreach, we now know the towels were one of the most well received items. Although we want to provide practical gifts, we also want to ensure we provide fun and whimsical items to keep the holiday spirit alive.
Our cost, when we can find amazing deals, is approximately $20 per stocking. Our goal is 50 stockings this year, so our fundraising goal is $1000. Thank you for your support!
