Adopt a Grandparent for Christmas

Adopt a grandparentIt’s that time of year when we want to do something to help make the holidays special for people in our community.  For the past five years, the local Mary Kay unit has adopted the residents at the Oil City Health Care and Rehabilitation Center & Oakwood Heights and has presented each of them with a special gift for Christmas.  The campaign this year began on November 1st.

Businesses and individuals are invited to help by adopting a grandparent for Christmas.  Your $15 donation will sponsor a special gift set (including a fragrance free hand cream and lip balm) for one resident and enable them to have a Merry Christmas.

HoLey Jeans and Young Voyagers of Good Hope will be delivering the gifts this year.  The residents love to see the young men and women coming around to visit them!  Your business card or name will be attached to the gift set so they will know that it is a gift from you or your business. This may be the only Christmas gift some of the residents receive.

This is a non-profit event, with each and every dollar contributed used to purchase a gift, Last year 245 individuals were personally wished a Merry Christmas through a  visit and gift presentation.
