Want this Christmas to feel different? Embrace the true meaning of the season by making a donation of time or talent to a cause that is close to your heart. If you’re short on both, make a monetary donation.
For many, the holidays bring fond memories of family gatherings surrounded by parents, grandparents and extended family. “Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go” is the vision most people have of the season. For some in our community, this pleasant vision is not reality.
At Alternative Senior Care, we provide compassionate care and peace of mind to seniors in their homes. During our day-to-day business operations, we see firsthand some of the many seniors who may not receive a gift or even have visitors over the holiday season.
Alternative Senior Care is delighted to sponsor our 10th annual Christmas For A Senior campaign. We purchase meaningful gifts for seniors in central Minnesota who may not receive a gift or even have visitors over the holiday season. Over the past nine years, we’ve warmed the hearts of 538 grateful individuals. We hope to impact the lives of 100+ lonely seniors this Christmas season.
Here are words from a thank you card we’ve received. “Thank you for the lovely Christmas gifts. And to have “Mary” delivery them to me was so special as the gift the “[Blessed] Mary” gave to the world. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know as it was a lonely Christmas. What a wonderful gift! PS. The PJS are so comfortable and warm.” (recipient)
If you’re aware of a central Minnesota senior who would benefit from this program, please call for a nomination form. We also need volunteers to help with shopping, wrapping or delivery!
A fund has been set up at Minnesota National Bank in Sauk Centre, MN to receive your tax-deductible donation. Checks should be made out to Christmas For A Senior. They can be mailed to either of our locations as well. Thank You!
