Many elderly seniors feel alone, especially during the Christmas holidays, because they no longer have a family or are physically unable to visit friends and family. These seniors hold a special place in our hearts. Senior Christmas is a collaborative gifting effort that enables the friends and neighbors of the Brazos Valley to give hope, spread cheer, and make smiles happen for our seniors.
Each year we identify homebound and nursing home seniors who have very little or no contact with their families during the Holidays and ask them for wish lists. These wish lists have the items the seniors need, like t-shirts, pj’s, sweatpants, body wash, etc. Community members then sponsor these Angel Tree tags and shop for the items. Volunteers assemble these items into gift bags and deliver them to nursing homes and residents throughout the Brazos Valley.
