Event Description

April 21, 2014 Updated Apr 21, 2014 at 12:16 PM CDT

Imagine if you were a senior citizen in a nursing home and NO friends or relatives ever came to visit you…not even for holidays. 50 of the 74 residents at this home NEVER have any visitors throughout the year.

Neighbor Love wants to brighten the day of a WHOLE BUNCH of valuable seniors THIS Mother’s Day. Adopt-a-Senior for Mother’s Day is a GREAT way to let a valuable senior know that someone still loves them.

We are hosting a Mother’s Day party and giving gift bags to seniors at Sharon Health Care Elms.

Visit www.ecubedintl.org to view past events.

Neighbor Love will be delivering gift bags of goodies to seniors during a Mother’s Day party on Sunday, May 11th, 2:30-5pm at Sharon Health Care Elms, 3611 NORTH ROCHELLE, PEORIA, IL 61604.

Our goal is to provide a gift bag to EVERY senior woman in Sharon Health Care Elms totaling 35.

The gift bags will include: skin lotion, socks, a rose, a piece of fruit, a hand-made Mother’s Day Card, and a stuffed animal. (exact contents of gift bag are subject to change according to availability of merchandise and the amount of donations received)

The investment to Adopt-a-Senior for Mother’s Day is just $20 per gift bag. You can sponsor as many seniors as you would like. A donation of ANY amount is appreciated.
