Reasons to Celebrate

Birthday Bags

Everyone deserves a reason to celebrate on their birthday. With help from the community, we delivery Birthday Bags to each senior on their birthday. Knowing people like you care makes a world of difference to homebound seniors.

To create these Bags, groups and individuals collect and assemble items into bags at a location of their choosing (such as a home or office), or space can be arranged in our offices. Items can be assembled into any paper-style lunch bag or gift bag. We encourage volunteers to insert a note or decorate the bags.

Below is a list of suggested items. We welcome your creativity in compiling the bags, adding items as you see fit.

  • Can of soup and crackers
  • Hot cocoa with peppermint sticks
  • Instant coffee or tea
  • Hard candies and snacks (crackers, chips, cookies, etc.)
  • Fresh fruit (softer fruits, such as clementines, are best)
  • Toiletries (hand or body lotion, lip balm, soap, etc.)
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Small magnifying glass
  • Puzzle books and pencils
  • Coloring books and crayons

Holiday Treats

Holiday Treats are a simple yet impactful way to let homebound seniors know the community cares. Receiving a holiday treat and/or card along with the hot meal gives our seniors an extra reason to celebrate special days.

Some of the favorite Holiday Treats include:

  • Valentine’s Day love notes
  • Mardi Gras party bag
  • St. Patrick’s Day pots of gold
  • Senior Citizen Day puzzle books and pencils
  • Halloween painted pumpkins
