Thanks for the help


The Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club and Douglas County Senior Center extend their appreciation to all of those who helped with and contributed to the Christmas gift bags for the local homebound seniors and Meals-on-Wheels recipients. This season we were able to distribute 130 large shopping bags filled with your gifts and donations. We received gifts and funds to buy gifts from many local businesses, casinos, retailers, schools, service clubs, churches and individuals too numerous to list here. The response to this project was fantastic.

Special thanks go out to the students of Gardnerville Elementary School who hand-made Christmas cards for the recipients of the gift bags and the Douglas High School Leadership students and Key Club members who helped with the delivery of the gift bags. The homebound seniors who received these gifts were highly appreciative and in many cases they were the only Christmas gifts which they received.

Thank you again, Douglas County, for your generous holiday spirit.
