The City of Somerville Council on Aging is now accepting donations of new games, puzzles, books, arts and craft supplies, and other fun items to deliver some cheer to local seniors. Sudoku books, word searches, adult coloring books, sketch pads, playing cards, and stationery are especially popular.
Donations will be used to create care packages that will be delivered directly to seniors’ residences. During the pandemic, while in-person programming has been on hold, these small but meaningful gestures are one way the Council stays connected to its patrons and continues to support seniors in our community.
Donated items should be dropped off in the designated box inside the front door of the Holland Street Senior Center, 167 Holland St. Items are being collected through Friday, August 7. Questions can be directed to Debby Higgins, Outreach Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (617) 625-6600 ext. 2321.
