Serve Your City:  Homemade Card & Blessing Bag for a Senior

About:  Senior centers and/or assisted living homes provide services to seniors who always need a little extra love, especially during these times.  They’ve had limited access to their family members and the community, and thus providing a little gift will surely uplift their spirits.    

 

Project Details: Create a homemade card and assemble a “Blessing Bag” with any of the suggested items below.  

Suggested Goodie Bags:

  • Spring Garden Kits: small pots, soil, seeds, tools, and include a homemade card.   
  • Game Kits: playing cards, large print puzzle books, pencils, etc., and include a homemade card. 
  • Treat Bags: chocolate, Nilla wafers, Cracker Jacks, etc., and include a homemade card. 
  • Toiletry Kits: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, washcloth, lotion, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant, and include a homemade card. 

Homemade Card: If you have children, make sure to involve them in making the cards.  Otherwise, get creative and write and personal note or words of encouragement.  

Pack into:  A dollar store gift bag/basket, gift bag, sturdy reusable grocery bag, wooden crate, etc.    

Child Friendly? Yes, get the entire family involved.  This will have a huge impact on both the children and the recipients.

How Many Kits? Make any amount that fits within your budget, 1-25+

Drop off days/times: It’s advised that you contact the Outreach Coordinator/Activities Coordinator in advance at a facility near you to arrange delivery.  You may ask them how many seniors reside at their facility in case you want to make enough goodie bags for each of them.
