It’s That Time of Year Again Holiday Cheer for Seniors!

For the past seventeen years, Unity of Washington, D.C., congregants have come together on Christmas Eve to prepare meals for local seniors who may not have friends or family with whom to celebrate the holidays. We also included holiday cards and gift cards from drugstores and supermarkets.
This year, to minimize the spread of the COVID-19, our Holiday Cheer for Seniors will happen differently. We will forgo preparing and delivering meals. However, we will continue providing seniors with gift cards. Specifically, we would like to present Grocery Store gift cards for $25, so that seniors can buy themselves something a little extra. Unity will mail the grocery store gift cards, along with a holiday card a few days prior to Christmas.
The seniors come to us through Everyone Home DC (formerly—Capitol Hill Group Ministries) and AARP’s Legal Consul for the Elderly. This year we plan to reach out to 250 Seniors.
