I'm told that many of the home-bound seniors love having their meals, a craft item or a gift delivered because it gives them a chance to interact with another person. They sometimes talk the ears off of the volunteer delivery drivers.

Most Senior Center provides an on-site lunch program, home-delivered meals, transportation assistance, classes and entertainment for seniors. Some regularly provide free blood pressure testing and grief recovery meetings. Class or group topics may include exercise, walking, yoga, dancing, ceramics, needlecrafts, quilting, poker, card playing, painting, doll making, legal issues, etc... For entertainment, many Senior Centers host bingo games, live bands, and movies.

Senior Center provides many services as well as a social outlet for numerous senior adults on a daily basis. They generally rely on grants, corporate donations, and donations from individuals in the community to make all this happen! They are therefore very appreciative of monetary and 'in-kind' donations. An 'in-kind' donation is a donation of goods. Senior Centers may be able to accept craft supplies, holiday decorations, small household items (that they sell at a fundraising garage sale), stuffed animals, toiletries and gift baskets among other things. To help seniors in your area, contact your local Senior Center to ask what types of donations they accept. Remember, Helping Senior Center Through 'Gift In-Kind' Donations Is Easy and It Makes A Difference In The Lives of Others!
