Gifts for Grandparents is here once again, as we have done in previous years, we will be collecting donations to create packages that will be delivered to isolated seniors in our community.  2023 marks the 15th year for Gifts for Grandparents, we couldn’t do this without the support from our community members, businesses, social groups, schools and so many others.  Thank you for your continued support.

Our requests have changed a little over the last couple of years, please take a look at our wish list, we will gratefully accept the following donations:
Lightweight blankets
Candy (individually wrapped, including Diabetic candy)
Large print crossword/word search books with pens
Gift card to Walmart, Superstore or any grocery store or cash
We ask that these items are smaller/individual sized items and not the large, oversized packages as these are too large for the seniors.
