December 2017 SPIN Meeting - A Time For Giving


When: Monday, December 11, 2017 from 3:00-5:00 pm

Where: Gladstone Senior Center

1050 Portland Ave,

Gladstone, OR 97027

Food and beverage sponsor: Avamere Living at Berry Park

Annual Holiday Giving: In 2013, the SPIN board was presented with an excess of blankets and other items collected for seniors. The board decided in light of this unexpected windfall, we would put the education portion of our December meeting on hiatus and instead select seniors with limited resources as recipients. This decision was met with enthusiasm from SPIN members and a request to establish a tradition. The selection process matches the SPIN goal to serve both sides of the Willamette River. Senior Centers with limited support from governmental agencies are considered. For 2017 we return to the east side Senior Centers of Gladstone, Molalla and Estacada as recipients.

The senior centers would appreciate donations such as:

  • Gift cards

  • Wet wipes

  • Toiletries (tooth brushes/tooth paste, soaps, shampoo, toilet paper, deodorant, lotions)

  • Gloves, hats, scarves, socks & non slip socks

  • Hearing Aid Batteries

  • Tablets/Notebooks

  • Pens/Pencils

  • BandAids

  • Flashlights

  • Batteries

  • Flashlights

  • Candy (regular/sugar free)

  • Cocoa (regular/sugar free)

Update: Thank you all for your generous donations! The senior centers were thrilled and so appreciative. Thank you.

Here are photos of all the donations.

Please join us at the Gladstone Senior Center (1050 Portland Ave, Gladstone, OR 97027 December 11th at 3:00 where we will present these gifts to the directors of each center.
