Donations needed for senior gift bags
October 28, 2011
Once again, the Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club in conjunction with the Douglas County Senior Center with the assistance from the students of Gardnerville Elementary School and Douglas High School are preparing Christmas gift bags for the recipients of Meals-on-Wheels and Douglas County homebound seniors. Most of these seniors live alone, and in some cases it is the only Christmas gift they may receive.
Young At Heart will assemble the gift bags on Dec. 8 at the Douglas County Senior Center. The gift bags will be delivered with the meals-on-wheels between Dec. 13 and 15. In order to complete these gift bags, Young At Heart needs donations of small presents such as sample size shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion, chap stick, soap, games, candy, nuts, wash cloths, hand towels, socks and gloves. They also need sugar free candy for diabetic clients.
Donations can be delivered to the Douglas County Senior Center, 2300 Meadow Lane, Gardnerville, or call the Senior Center at 783-6455, Annette Muller at 265-1948 or Paul Lockwood at 782-6583 and they will pick up your donations. Cash or gift card donations will be accepted as well. Donations can be mailed to the Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club, P. O. Box 1042, Gardnerville, NV 89410-1042.
