WHOSE HELP IS REQUIREDAdult
HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Many homebound seniors feel lonely in their daily lives. Because they don't get around as much as they used to, they often miss the daily human interactions they used to have and are grateful for every phone call, visit, letter, or email they receive. A homemade card from a caring person can really brighten a senior's day. It makes them feel loved and remembered.
Make holiday cards for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any other holiday of your choosing and bring a little cheer to homebound seniors. St. Vincent Meals on Wheels will make sure they get delivered along with needed food and a friendly smile!
