Touch of Love Gift Bags
Many of our seniors are living alone and can feel extremely isolated during this pandemic. This team prepares gift bags for many of them, which include items that are not only useful but offer a cheerful reminder that they are cared for. You can volunteer to prepare the gifts bags and/or deliver them. This will be done two times in the year. For more information, contact Leslie Finertie.
