Imagine if you were a senior citizen in a nursing home and had no friends or relatives to visit or contact you. ANY holiday would not be that pleasant. THIS Christmas, Neighbor Love, a ministry of E CUBED International, wants to brighten the day of a WHOLE BUNCH of valuable seniors.

 

Adopt-a-Senior for Christmas is a GREAT way to let a valuable senior know that someone still loves them. Neighbor Love will be delivering gift bags of goodies to seniors during a Christmas party. Our goal is to provide a gift bag to EVERY senior in Sharon Health Care Elms - 74 seniors total.

 

The gift bags will include skin lotion/shaving cream, socks, a poinsettia, a piece of fruit, a Christmas card, and a stuffed animal/puzzle book. (Exact contents of gift bag are subject to change)

 

The investment to Adopt a Senior for Christmas is just $20 per gift bag.

 

ALL donations are tax deductible.

 

You can sponsor as many seniors as you would like. A donation of ANY amount is appreciated.

If you would like to join us, you are welcome to deliver your bag to the seniors at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 21st.

 

We will also need volunteers to help assemble the gift bags at Sharon Health Care Elms at 1pm on December 21st.
