It’s That Time of Year Again ~ Holiday Cheer for Seniors!
For many years, Unity of Washington, D.C. congregants have come together on Christmas Eve to deliver meals, holiday cards, and supermarket/drugstore gift cards to low-income seniors who may not have friends or family around with whom to celebrate the holidays.
Over the past few years, to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have not prepared and delivered meals, but have continued to provide seniors with $25.00 supermarket/drugstore gift cards. Unity mails holiday cards with the gift cards so seniors receive the cards a few days prior to Christmas. The seniors come to us through AARP’s Legal Consul for the Elderly and Everyone Home DC (formerly—Capitol Hill Group Ministries). This year, we will provide gift cards to 250 seniors.
To contribute to Holiday Cheer for Seniors:

2. Supermarket gift cards and checks can also be dropped off at the church office.
NOTE: If you make a monetary donation, we will purchase the supermarket gift cards. All supermarket gift cards and donations should be received by no later than Friday, December 9.
