Come join us as we celebrate the holidays with the young and old alike. Seeds of Caring families will join residents from Jaycee Arms Senior Apartments at their annual holiday party. We will play games, sing Christmas carols, and give gifts to the residents. We will also socialize with the residents while they eat their lunch (feel free to pack lunch if you'd like). One resident may even make an appearance as Santa :) This is an annual event that residents look forward to every year- the kids' smiles really light up their day! Prior to the event, you might review this brief article about teaching children to interact with seniors:http://everydaylife.globalpost.com/teach-kids-interact-elderly-22506.html
IMPORTANT NOTE: For this event, we ask each family to work with your child before the event date to put together a small gift bag for 1 male and 2 female seniors. Please keep the value of the gift bag around $4-5 and consider the following items: puzzle books, notecards, notepads, stamps, soaps, socks, lotions, cologne, mugs, etc. The dollar store is a great place for these items! Feel free to include something handmade as well. Bring your gifts to the event to pass out to seniors.
