Donations needed for senior Christmas gift bags

Kurt Hildebrand file photoMary Quiroga of the Douglas County Key Club hands a present to Minden resident Joanne Grant last year. Key Club members were taken to the homes of Valley seniors by the Douglas Area Rural Transit and with the help of the Young at Heart Club.

Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club is preparing Christmas gift bags for the recipients of Meals-on-Wheels and homebound seniors.

Many of these seniors live alone and in some cases it is the only Christmas gift which they may receive.

In order to complete these gift bags, Young At Heart needs donations of small unwrapped presents such as sample-size shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion, playing cards, soap, candy, nuts, wash cloths, hand towels, socks and gloves.

Deliver gifts to the Douglas County Senior Center, 2300 Meadow Lane, Gardnerville, or call 783-6455 for your donation to be picked up. Monetary donations can be mailed to the Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club, P.O. Box 1042, Gardnerville, NV 89410-1042.
