Adopt a Local Senior This Holiday Season

The Gilbert Chamber Foundation is organizing the ninth annual “Adopt A Senior” program this holiday season to benefit Gilbert’s low-income senior citizens as well as homebound seniors and disabled Gilbert residents, in partnership with the Gilbert Senior Center.

The Chamber is asking members of the community to support this year’s Adopt A Senior effort by requesting a wish list, then shopping for and returning the items to the Chamber by Wednesday, December 6th. An average list costs $25 and may include a variety of requested items.

In addition, the Chamber is seeking the donation of miscellaneous items in quantities of 50 or more and will use these items to make up goody bags that are distributed to low-income seniors at a holiday party hosted by the Chamber. Donated items often range from magnets to mouthwash and can be anything that would be useful or appreciated by a senior.

To fulfill a wish list or provide donations for the goody bags, please contact Ashley Silva by e-mail to ashley@gilbertchamber.com. Be sure to include your contact information and the number of seniors/lists you would like to adopt. Monetary donations are accepted and will be used to purchase gift cards for unfulfilled wish lists. Donations can be sent to the Gilbert Chamber Foundation, PO Box 527, Gilbert, AZ  85299.

We look forward to your involvement!
