Holiday cheer is already in the air at Project Linkage, which expects to provide gifts to more than 200 isolated adults in our community, said Marcy Hughes, a program coordinator.
She is seeking volunteers to wrap the gifts from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. December 7. Volunteers also will deliver gift bags between December 10 and 24.
These are opportunities for families and individuals, who also can visit with the recipients during the holiday season, Hughes said.
The bags include basic necessities, such as scarves and soap, but some volunteers make quilts and other items, she said.
“For many of these people, this is the only gift they will receive,” Hughes said.
Volunteers may call (503) 688-1782 or email gro.y1516298047limaf1516298047tem@r1516298047eetnu1516298047lov1516298047. To inquire about making donations, call (503) 249-0471.
Project Linkage, a program of Metropolitan Family Service, provides services to help isolated seniors and people with disabilities remain in their own homes.
