Every year, Concordia Lutheran Ministries’ “Adopt-A-Resident” program ensures that our residents have a gift to open for Christmas, and the community is invited to participate and help brighten our residents’ holidays.
First, our skilled nursing and personal care residents provide activities staff with a wish list. Next, employees, community members, churches, businesses and even independent living residents “adopt” a resident (or in some cases many residents) and purchase some or all of the items on the resident’s wish list.
If you are interested in participating in the program this year, call the Concordia community of your choice below and ask to “adopt” a resident. For those who prefer to send a general gift, the activities staff can suggest some newly purchased items that residents typically use.
Items should be wrapped and labeled with either the resident’s name or, if it is a general gift, what the gift is. Gifts can be dropped off at the appropriate facility. General gift ideas include sweatshirts, sweatpants, door wreaths, stamps and stationery, digital clocks with large numbers, hair salon gift certificates and slippers or slipper socks.
Participating locations, contact people and gift deadlines are:
Please call the community before the deadline if you wish to participate in the program. Monetary contributions are always appreciated and can be sent to Concordia Lutheran Ministries Foundation, 134 Marwood Rd., Cabot, PA 16023.
