🎄It's Senior Santa Time!
We are pleased to announce that we are participating in the Golden Senior Santa program that provides holiday gifts to senior citizens who have financial or health challenges and often do not have family nearby. This gives us a chance to brighten the holidays of a group in our community who are sometimes overlooked and forgotten during this time of year. The program uses an “angel tree” that has paper tags/ornaments with the name of a senior citizen and a gift they have requested. You can either pick up a tag at either Connects location beginning today, or do everything online.If you choose to pick up a physical tag, you can drop your gift off at either Armory tree or Mercantile tree. Please drop off your gift no later than Wednesday, Dec. 9th. VIRTUAL OPTION This year, to make it easy, the program has created an Amazon Wish List that shows the specific gift requests from each of the seniors. Once you choose a gift from the Wish List, Add to your Cart and under "Your Addresses" select "Golden Senior Santa's Gift Registry Address" and it will be delivered to the Golden Pole for wrapping and distribution. If you choose to buy your gift virtually, the Wish List can be viewed here.
If you would like to participate in the program, please make sure you buy in time for the gifts to be delivered by December 9th.
We know there are many charitable causes throughout the year, and everyone needs to make their own decision about which ones to support.
We very much appreciate your consideration of this worthwhile cause and the potential to make a difference in the lives and holiday cheer of a group of local seniors.
Connects will be closed Dec. 24th through Jan. 3rd for the holidays! If you have 24/7 membership, you are welcome to work in the space but no staff will be on duty.
