There are approximately 350 seniors on the Island who are homebound; most are very isolated with no family near. Last year we served 150 with our Holiday program, this year we would like to provide a Holiday Gift Bag for all! We also helped 80+ seniors who have no family and live in a nursing home, This year we would like to expand to 100.
With YOUR help we can make the Holidays happier for these seniors. As one recipient told me last year "I am so thankful. This is the only present I will get and I am thrilled". Your donation will go toward individually chosen presents for those in need.
We are also providing for the 200+ children in an Island neighborhood that is considered historically underserved. Our 3rd year doing this.
Additionally, we will have our Holiday Tree in our store (My Island Thrift, 245 Crockett Blvd.) and our card signing table. Please visit us and see what the holiday can bring for your Island neighbors.

Thank you so much! YOU can make a difference!
