Senior Holiday ProjectMake the Holiday Brighter for Homebound La Mesa Seniors
Starting October 7th, we are gathering items to assist 24 homebound seniors. Donate items from your pantry, and be sure to double check the expiration date. All of the gifts are wrapped and placed in decorative baskets, so that our seniors receive these gifts with a festive flair. These gifts baskets are delivered with a hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings to our 24 homebound seniors living in La Mesa.
We need to gather ALL of our items by Friday, November 29th, to be included in the senior gift bags and baskets.
You may deliver your items to:
Drop them off at the Chamber Office: 8080 La Mesa Blvd., Suite 212, La Mesa, CA 91942 between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Call to meet Mary England to have her pick up items at (619) 251-7730. The office is up two flights of stairs and canned goods are heavy and cumbersome, so this is a suggested option for heavy items. Items can be delivered to Fran Smith at 8080 La Mesa Blvd., Suite 214 – next door during the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. also.
If you have questions or need assistance with the delivery of your donated items, contact Mary England on her cell phone (619) 251-7730.
Suggested items to purchase or donate*:
Canned soups, canned vegetables, canned fruits, crackers, pasta, marinara, macaroni & cheese, instant cereals, bars of soap, tubes of tooth paste, tissues, bottles of hand soaps, hand sanitizer, socks, pens and pads of paper. Gift cards in any denomination from the following locations: Walmart, Target, or any grocery store.
If you have another item you believe will put a smile on their faces, by all means drop them off! We want to make this a memorable holiday for our home bound seniors again this year.
*If you donate pantry items, please double check the expiration date and ensure they have not expired.
