Senior Christmas is one of many community outreach programs that Brazos 2020 supports in the region. Through a collaborative gifting effort, we are able to facilitate friends and neighbors of the Brazos Valley as they give hope, spread cheer, and make smiles happen for our seniors year after year.
Many elderly seniors feel alone, especially during the Christmas holidays, because they no longer have a family or are physically unable to visit friends and family. These seniors hold a special place in our hearts.
Each year we identify homebound and nursing home seniors who have very little or no contact with their families during the holidays and ask them for wish lists. We collect clothing, large print books, and other requested items. Volunteers assemble these items into gift bags and deliver them to nursing homes and residents throughout the Brazos Valley.
