Christmas donations sought for home-bound seniors

Being home-bound for the holidays redefines the phrase “bah humbug!” Fortunately, the Holiday Cheer Project is coming once again! We need your help to bring a gift of joy to seniors in Nevada County. This is a wonderful project for families to do together as they celebrate the good fortune of the holidays.

Sponsored by the Senior Outreach Nurses, holiday gift bags are delivered to approximately 140 home-bound seniors in Nevada County. For some of these seniors, this may be the only gift they receive, and they really appreciate it.

To fill the bags, we need pens, note cards, scarves, gloves, knee highs, socks, hankies, lotions, soaps, shampoos, razors, nail files, etc. Also needed are regular and sugar-free single servings of hot cocoa, oatmeal, spiced cider and wrapped candy. These items can be dropped off at the RSVP office, 271 Sutton Way, Suite 202, (above Incredible Pets), Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The deadline for donations is Nov. 29. Included in the gift bags are plates of homemade cookies. These can be dropped off at the office Dec. 12.

We will also need packers and drivers to deliver the gift bags.

If you can help in any way, please call the RSVP office at (530) 271-0255, or call Judi Barbour, RSVP volunteer, at (530) 432-4585 for information.
