Simple Wishes for the Holidays

The Simple Wishes program was created to allow us the opportunity to make a senior feel special and not forgotten over the holiday season.  We provide a wrapped present, signed Christmas card and a visit to each qualifying senior.  Our goal is to recognize seniors with little or no family, or those who may not receive any presents during the holidays.  An item might be something a senior needs, or just something they would like to have. We encourage the nominator to ask the senior what they would like for a Christmas gift, with a value under $50.

Wish Recipient Requirements

Nominees need to be US Citizens, 65+, residing in in Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee or Wyoming counties.  Income under $38,000 ($44,000 for a couple) OR a permanent resident of a care facility. 

Application Deadline: November 19th

The first 150 qualifying applications will be fulfilled.

A nominator may refer up to three seniors.  Preference will be given to seniors not nominated in previous years.


Contact Wendy at (716) 508-2121 or [email protected].  Fax:  716-662-6985 

Please contact us early if you are with a care facility and have a larger number of seniors to nominate.
