The 9th Annual Seniors Still Believe Campaign will run from November 7th through December 7th in 2018. During this time, we partner with the Sunset Mall to help make sure our elderly clients experience the warmth of the season this Christmas by asking the community to fulfill a senior's gift wish so that they can have at least one Christmas gift.
On Nov. 7th, a Christmas tree will be set up in the South Entrance of the mall with ornaments. Each ornament displays a homebound elderly individual's name, Christmas gift wish, and sizes if necessary. The community is invited to pick an ornament off the tree and shop for the client's Christmas wish, then drop off the ornament with the gift at either Barbed Wire & Roses at the mall (south entrance across from Ulta) or at the Meals For The Elderly office (310 E. Houston Harte) during normal business hours. This year, there will also be a tree and donation box available at Johnson's Funeral Home (435 W. Beauregard) for your added convenience!
We ask that all items and ornaments be returned by Dec. 7th to ensure the client on each ornament receives their gift by Christmas. We will wrap and deliver these gifts with the help of our AMAZING volunteers!
We are also accepting donations of LARGE Christmas gift bags so that the gifts can arrive with the look and feel of a Christmas gift and smaller donations of "stocking stuffer" style items (listed below). These will be a welcome addition to the larger gifts seniors are asking for this year. Thank you for your support!
