Throughout the year, we help seniors with the basics. Unfortunately, many seniors on very low fixed incomes have nothing to spare to celebrate the holidays.
This joyful season is a time to show people that they matter to you and that you are thinking about them. You can give that love to a local senior through Elder Elf, a gift giving program to benefit the individuals served by Elder Care Services throughout the year.
Care managers are identifying clients in need this holiday season and are meeting with them to create wish lists with basic needs and holiday treats. Local businesses, families and individuals have the opportunity to brighten the holiday each year for seniors in Leon County by “adopting” a senior’s wish list. The connections created through Elder Elf provide wonderful memories and remind us what this season is truly about. Last year with the help of more than 130 generous individuals and groups, the Elder Elf Program brightened the holidays for over 200 seniors and many more received gifts and other essentials to help them throughout the year.
Every year the number of seniors submitting lists grows as the number of seniors in our community increases. Please consider helping provide holiday cheer to a senior this year!
