Join forces with our choruses again this year to “adopt” three local, low-income seniors through Cobb County’s Senior Santa program. Each senior below has provided a list of practical and modest “wishes” and the chorus groups are raising money to fulfill those wishes over the holidays.
Lemeul Ruster (71 year-old gentleman)
Pearl Clunes (88 year-old lady)
O’Reava Allgood (78 year-old lady)
Your donation in any amount is welcome. Make checks out to LCBA and send in with your student. Each group has their own collection jug for their adopted senior. Womens Chorale and The Vocal Project will work together to raise money for their senior.
Last year, we raised $900 and were able to fulfill four seniors’ modest wish lists and we’d love to top that amount this year.
Deb has already negotiated discounts with some local stores for some of the wish list items, so your donation will go far! Kohls’s in Woodstock has already agreed to give 30% off anything purchased at their store. Mattress Firm in Acworth has offered a discounted price of $200 for the mattress/boxspring/frame for one of our seniors.
We encourage you to do business with these local retailers and express appreciation for their support of this effort.
