For February’s theme of Senior Support, the Foundation is offering these collection drives:
In Wheaton, you can send a Valentine balloon (with a personal message) to a resident at the DuPage Care Center, which provides quality long-term care (as well as short-term rehabilitative services) to DuPage County residents. You can send a balloon for only $4.00!
Also in Wheaton, you can donate paper goods to Humanitarian Service Project, which works to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to seniors and children in DuPage and Kane Counties. The collection box is located on the 3rd floor in the common area. The drive will go until February 25th. Items we are looking to collect: toilet paper, paper towels and boxes of tissues.
In Austin, you can donate supplies to AGE of Central Texas, the longest-operating and licensed adult activity health center in Central Texas. AGE provides daytime care and social wellness support for older adults with physical and cognitive needs. For specific details, see the flyer on your bulletin board, Austin. The collection drive goes until February 25th.
