Extendicare Guildwood wishes for a stereo for their lounge area, and also appreciate any small items that can serve as prizes for their Bingo Program.
Our morning class will be sponsoring Betty, and our afternoon class will be sponsoring Andre.
Both of these seniors are wishing for socks, unscented soap or lotion, a stuffed toy, and facial tissues.
Other items that they may be able to use are:
items such as Kleenex; socks without tight elastics; undershirts (size large); unscented bodywash; shampoo; shaving cream; toothbrush and paste; butter cookies(no nuts); pencils or pens; word search or crossword books; small photo album; mints or fruit candies; hat or gloves. (this is from last year's request list)
I will put a gift tag on each gift stating what is inside to make sure that each senior gets appropriate gifts (i.e. -- no candy to a diabetic patient)
On Monday December 13 the classes will be wrapping gifts and making cards! If you have any extra wrapping paper or gift bags at home, feel free to donate them (our class already has a few rolls, but some other classes may not).
The gifts will be delivered between December 14th-17th.
I saw the photos from last year and heard some wonderful stories-- they brought tears to my eyes -- the seniors truly do appreciate this.
