***We've Made a Few Changes***

Although we enjoyed our Stockings for Seniors program, we determined that there are many organizations, church groups, community groups and individuals who kindly make donations to Seniors at Christmas time but we found that not much is done during the rest of the year.  We want these Seniors to know that they're remembered all year.  In order to do this we have initiated a new program called "Birthday Bags".  We will be contacting local long term care facilities and residences to find out how many of their Seniors could use a Birthday smile or two.  We will put together bags which will include one or two "needed" items and also something fun!
If you would like to help you can bring an item or two to the craft show to help us fill some bags.  We will also have a "Change Jar" set up for donations of any loose change you might have.  Any money collected will go directly to purchasing the bags and the fillers.  Anything you can do to help us bring some joy to lonely Seniors throughout the year would be amazing and so very much appreciated
We received a list of suggested items from a local long term care facility:

Unscented hand/body lotion

Hair scrunches

Hair elastics (no metal parts)

Undershirts for both genders

Adult colouring books

Nail polish

Nail polish remover

Unscented liquid body soap

Unscented shampoo

Small packets of tissue

Neck pillows

Notebooks and pens

**please note-scented products and food items cannot be included in the bags
