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.
This year we’re going to try something different for our Holiday Giving to Senior Centers usually held in December. We have decided that there are a lot of requests for donations in December and it gets overwhelming for everybody. Seniors have needs all year so this year we’re going to do Holidays in August. Every month between now and August we’ll collect items for the Estacada, Molalla and Gladstone senior centers and will donate what is collected in August.
December is a busy month for everybody so we will skip that meeting and will continue our regularly formatted meetings in January 2020.
The senior centers would appreciate donations such as:
Batteries for hearing aids
Hand Warmers (like HotHands)
Hot chocolate/Apple Cider/Teas
Soaps, shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste/tooth brush
