It's that wonderful time of year when we all have a chance to do something to help make the holiday special for someone else!  Here's how donors can help:

  • Drop by the Goppert Building and pick up a wish list off the tree.
  • Shop for your Senior ($25 limit)
  • Return wrapped gifts no later than December 15th! 

Seniors who wish to sign up to receive a gift are welcome to stop by the Goppert Building, call the Goppert Building (242-1939), or email us at  There is no cost to seniors who wish to sign up to receive a gift!
