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. Our seniors this year are Gladys (79), Charles (78), and Margie (91).
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 contributing/collecting money for use toward fulfilling the “wish list” for their senior citizen (“Senior”). Gifts on our seniors lists this year prescription gift card, Ensure, pair of blue jeans, comforter and sheet set, and diabetic socks.
Cash or check donations (any checks should be written to LCBA) can be placed in the appropriate collection jug in the chorus room. 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 Friday, November 14. 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. We raised $1,661 (nearly twice as much as the year before). With that money, we were able to fill our 3 seniors’ wish list and those of 4 additional seniors!
Have your teen look for their group’s donation jug in the Chorus room. All questions should be directed to Deb Speed. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful program.
