Simple Wishes for the Holidays

The purpose of this campaign is to bring joy to seniors for whom the holiday season may be a difficult time due to isolation, loneliness, illness or loss of a loved one. If you would like to nominate a senior, please talk with them first and ask them what small gift might have meaning for them. An item might be something a senior needs, or something they would like to have such as pajamas, a robe, linens, craft items or a small appliance.

All gifts should be under $50 in value. Seniors MAY NOT nominate themselves. All recipients receive a stuffed animal, throw blanket and puzzle book in addition to their requested gift (value under $50). All nominated seniors are still eligible for an individual wish granting in the future.

  • 65+ years old
