Lassiter Chorus families:
This holiday season, the Lassiter Chorus is again going to “adopt” 3 low-income Cobb County Senior citizens in need, by participating in the County’s “Adopt-a-Senior” program.
Here is how it will work…
We are planning for each of our three Chorus groups to “adopt” one Senior citizen. This will involve students in contributing/collecting money for use toward fulfilling the “Wish List” for their Senior citizen (“Senior”). Gifts have historically ranged from “a coat” or “a warm bathrobe” to “knitting supplies” to Ensure or Compression stockings. We will have a drawing to choose “shoppers” and “wrappers”, and the gifts will be delivered near holiday time.
Cash or check donations (any checks should be written to LCBA) can be placed in the appropriate collection jug in the Chorus room or given to Mr. Williams. Please write your student’s Choral Group and “Adopt-a-Senior” on checks, or write this information on an envelope if containing cash, so we will know which group to allocate the money to. Our donation deadline for the “Adopt-a-Senior” program is November 7. At that point, “shoppers” from each Choral group will use the money to purchase items for each “Senior”, and I will deliver the gifts to Cobb County Senior Organization for distribution at their Holiday Party, or for delivery to the “Senior’s” home just after the party.
We hope our Chorus families will join together to provide for these Senior citizens through our sheer numbers and enthusiasm! No contribution is too small or large. Participation is, of course, voluntary, and we do not want any family to feel pressured to give. Simply give what you would like and what you can afford. Last year our efforts were a huge success; feel free to come to the Chorus room and read Nellie’s wonderful thank you note for her gifts last year! Have your teen look for their group’s donation jug in the Chorus room beginning Wednesday, October 17. All questions should be directed to Deb Speed. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful program.
