Plan ‘A’ Timmins hires health care professionals for long term care and retirement homes. And teaming up with the local Rotary Club again this year, it’s offering the Adopt a Senior program.
Administrative assistant Michelle Lambert says community elves help fill the wish lists of seniors who might not have holiday visitors.
“These wish lists vary from need items such as toiletries and clothing to hobbies and treats and things like that,” she outlines. “They’re general pretty modest.”
You drop the gifts off at the office at 230 First Ave. by December 12th. That’s on the corner of Pine St., next to the Porcupine Health Unit.
“Even if you wanted to adopt a senior on Deember 10th,” Lambert notes, “you wanted to do some power shopping, then that’s totally fine. Just that everything be brought in by December 12th if possible”.
The names of the givers and the recipients are kept confidential from each other.
