I was thinking that doing this for Christmas for seniors (as well as Veterans in VA hospitals or VA homes) would be a nice way to reach out to them, especially if any of you have Meals on Wheels or VA facilities in your community.
This could also be done for folks in rehab, IL, AL or other facilities.
I used to send a package to my great aunt before her death. It was all that she and her disabled daughter received. They loved getting a package with lotion, music CD, candy, calendar, coffee, bedroom slippers, and a little cash. They were like little kids on Christmas eve. It's a precious memory for me.
You might also volunteer to put up a small tree for a senior who isn't able or who doesn't have one. You can get a small artificial, lit tree that is not too expensive. I know that just looking at the lights can lift my spirit.
I know it brightens my day to get a Christmas card. People don't send them very often anymore. Whether it's the cost of postage or the internet technology, but to me....a good regular card speaks volumes. If finances permit, I insert a small gift card inside.
