Holiday Gift Drive “Operation Warm Fuzzies”

You can help bring the spirit of the season to a special senior who might not receive a gift or be remembered during the holidays.  Providing a warm, fuzzy throw blanket, perfect for curling up in a favorite chair or on the sofa will let them know you care.  Get details here.
