ScrippsAssists Begins Senior Basket Project
ScrippsAssists is starting its annual Senior Basket Project.
The project is in need once again of your generous help, through
contributions of time, money, or items for holiday baskets.
ScrippsAssists is coordinating this project with The Senior
Community Center, which provides quality, customer-focused
services to help seniors maintain their independence.
The Senior Basket Project is in need of the following items:
slippers, gloves, hats, socks, hand towels, mugs, holiday
items, calendars, stamps, stationery, shampoo and conditioner,
magnifying glass, Reader Digest issues, Kleenex, mouthwash,
combs, nail clippers, flashlight and batteries, drinks such
as Ensure or Boost, and cellophane wrap (for the baskets).
Only new items please. This year, the project will be providing
baskets, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, and deodorant. These
items cost over $600, so ScrippsAssists is asking for monetary
donations. Checks can be made out to "ScrippsAssists" and
mailed to IMM11, attention Helen.
Locations of drop off boxes will include the Immunology,
