Gift basket project for senior citizens underway

The Annual Holiday Gift Basket Project, an initiative of Senior Connections, is accepting donations through Dec. 9. The program promotes healthy aging, helps seniors remain independent in their homes and communities, and brings holiday cheer to isolated seniors and those in the greatest need of support.

During the recent years of economic recession, Senior Connections has received an increasing number of calls from seniors seeking assistance. The basket project has helped seniors who often have to choose between paying utility bills, purchasing medications and food or taking care of the rent or mortgage. Through the project, seniors have received help obtaining mattresses and box springs, winter coats and other clothing, televisions, radios, and emergency preparedness items.

Individuals and local organizations – including civic, nonprofit, faith and corporate – wishing to donate items may drop them off at the Richmond East District Center, 701 N. 25th Street or at Senior Connections, 24 E. Cary St., Second Floor. Donation needs include non-perishable food items, canned goods, toiletries, paper products, emergency preparedness items and gift cards for grocery stores and pharmacies.

Other emergency needs may be met through monetary contributions from individuals and area businesses interested in supporting the Project; make checks or money orders payable to Senior Connections, write “Holiday Project “on the memo line of your check and mail to SC/CAAA, 24 E. Cary Street, Richmond, VA 23219. Donations are tax deductible.
