"Baskets of Love" for our Treasured Seniors 60+
This concept was instituted in 2001 but on a smaller scale. We would give bags of personal care and non-essential household items to those in crisis situations, at that time it was known as "Love Baskets". As we began to see this ongoing need in our senior/elderly communities we were mandated to meet the needs on a larger scale. On March 2017 we began assisting the seniors out-of-pocket with white laundry baskets filled with the above mentioned items and making it available to any senior 60+. We have given over 300 baskets and have traveled as far as Maryland. We have since named this outreach effort "Baskets of Love" which is a on-going effort. Many Seniors, Caregivers and families are very greatful for these baskets.
No financial information is required. They are free of charge. Baskets are on a first come, first serve basis, no baskets will be held.
