All donations are due Friday, December 6. Listed are the three ways to donate to the Adopt-a-Senior program:

"Adopt" a senior

When you adopt a senior, you will receive a list of items from your senior. See a sample of the wish list (PDF). You are asked to purchase three items off of their list. The list will give you size and color preferences. You are also asked to purchase a grocery gift card of at least $35 to the senior's preferred store, a book of Forever stamps and an extra large gift bag. Please drop off your donations at the Via Linda Senior Center.
