“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others.” ―Bob Hope
Our 2019 Christmas in July campaign, sponsored again this year by our generous partner Piedmont Federal Savings Bank, will be in full swing before you know it. And this annual drive is, when you get right down to it, all about loving others and showing them that you care. Remembering the many homebound older adults we serve who are struggling daily to make ends meet is a way to live out the spirit of Christmas even when it’s 90 degrees outside, with no reindeer in sight.
Below is this year’s wish list, which you or your faith, civic or business group can clip out and refer to as you make your regular shopping trips in the coming weeks. Please consider dropping a few of the wish list items into your shopping cart and delivering them to Senior Services, 2895 Shorefair Drive. Keep your eyes peeled for the big red boxes at your local Piedmont Federal Savings branch offices. You can drop your item donations there, as well, starting in late June or early July. Your kindness will touch hearts and ease burdens.
“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind.
The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.” – Henry James
