This year instead of a Giving Tree, the food shelf has requested we focus our giving to the senior age community this year! There are 50 senior age clients that receive services from the food shelf by getting their food delivered to them each month. With our senior age friends being the most isolated during this pandemic we wanted to focus our giving on them. We are hoping to provide these clients with some Holiday cheer with each one of them receiving a gift basket full of goodies.
When To Drop Off Donations:
November 15 – December 11
Where to Drop Off Donations:
At door 1 of SJ School in the large bin labeled “Senior Holiday Baskets Donation Drop Off”. Please place any gift card donations in the drop-box instead of the bin in an envelope labeled “Senior Holiday Baskets”.
