For seniors in our community who live alone, are financially challenged and donít have any relatives nearby, the holidays can be a tough time. At NexusBC we are working on changing that.
Our Making Spirits Bright campaign is dedicated to helping seniors in Vernon feel cared for and appreciated during the holiday season by providing a gift card for items that recipients want and need.
If you would like to help in making spirits bright for low-income seniors this Christmas season, please purchase a gift card of any amount from a local store that can provide the basic necessities (food, toiletries, clothing) and bring this to our office along with a cheerful card. Feel free to personalize your gift and make it into a hamper with additional items that you feel a senior would like such as slippers, socks, cookies, chocolate, tea, etc...
The gift cards that will be of most use to seniors in need include the Wholesale Club, Safeway, and Walmart. Please also enclose the activation receipt, if you have it.
The more gift cards we receive, the more seniors we can include!
This yearís program runs from October 15 Ė December 17.
