We received this message Thursday from the coordinator of the Senior Basket program for Dixon Toys for Tots:
I run the senior basket program for Toys for Tots in Dixon. We coordinate large food and gift boxes to seniors in need who would otherwise be alone of Christmas Eve. The boxes consist of a couple meals worth of food, eggs, cheese, bread, + more, a card and gift as well as a certificate donated by Buds for 2 dinners. Families line up on Christmas Eve at the fairgrounds to pick up boxes and head out for visits with the seniors.
Here is the problem. I have a list of about 120 seniors we normally visit, and this year, we have only been able to get a hold of less that 50. Either disconnected numbers, moved, deceased, ect. We know that there are many seniors who need this visit and we aren't able to find them all. We need anyone who knows a senior in need to give us a call 707-365-5804 or email FancyFrostings@yahoo.com with the name, phone number and address if possible.
