C.A.R.E. Immigrant Women’s Support Group will be volunteering with Gifts for Grandparents organized by Family Services of Central Alberta for seniors in the community who could use some festive goodies and Christmas cheer during the holiday season. They will be volunteering in sorting and bagging donations to be handed out the week prior to Christmas.

Individuals who may benefit from gifts for grandparents come from lodges, family, neighbours and friends. Some of the items donated are: socks, knitted hats/mittens, cookies, chocolate, soaps, magazines, coffee & teas, Christmas ornaments, slippers and personal hygiene products to name a few.  Each bag has the equivalent of around $20 inside.

For many seniors, this was their only Christmas gift or only visit during the season.
