Our Christmas Angel Program is our biggest event of the year! Many of our clients are secluded, living on budgets of less than $100/month, or have simply outlived their friends and family, meaning Christmas can be a sad and difficult time of year for them. That's where we come in!
Here's how it works... Our senior and disabled adult clients, with the help of their case manager or residential facility coordinator, fill out a wish list. These lists are sent to Granny’s and then we match the wishes to Angels (YOU!) who anonymously purchase and wrap the presents. We ask clients to keep their wish lists in the $25-50 range and clients typically ask for things like clothing, towels, sheets, blankets, body wash & lotion sets, hats & gloves, arts & crafts items and so on.
Last year in 2021, our Angels/shoppers helped us provide gifts for 1,091 clients, totaling OVER THREE THOUSAND PRESENTS!! We appreciate everyone who came together to make this happen for our senior and adults with disabilities clients, and you make us proud to be part of such a wonderful community!
