It’s a rather chilly day today outside of the
, the perfect day
to cozy up inside and stay warm. While we appreciate some of the benefits
of winter weather, such as the beautiful snowy landscape, the subzero
temperatures remind us of an unfortunate fact, cold season is upon us. Winter
is a time of sniffling and coughing for many, and the impoverished seniors in
our Senior Citizen Project are no exception. Unfortunately, living on an average
income of only $886 a month, these seniors cannot always afford the items
needed to get through a cold comfortably. HSP
One way you can help is by donating paper products like toilet paper, paper towels, and facial tissues (ever important this time of year.) HSP provides each of the 123 needy seniors in our program with a bag full of these paper products every month to provide them with the items they need to maintain a healthy hygienic lifestyle. This becomes even more important this time of year when bugs just seem to always be around.
Another way you can lend support to these needy seniors stay healthy this cold season is by donating personal care items. Every three months, HSP provides each senior with a personal care kit which includes; shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, lotion, soap, and hand sanitizer. You can assist HSP in providing these important items to seniors by either donating a few specific items, or making one, or more, complete kit(s) yourself.
