Delaware Valley Veterans Home, Philadelphia, Pa

Help us brighten the holidays for local elderly veterans at the Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia. These men are in need of new personal electric razors with a storage case. Although they do get some electric razors donated, they are often cheap and break easily. They sometimes shave them with regular disposable razors, but the men have thin skin and get cut easily.  Each of the 130 residents would love their own razor as it is not sanitary to share them. Our goal is to raise $50 per razor and to present these gift to the men during a holiday celebration. Your donation of $50 will provide a much-needed item to a deserving veteran and will show them that we remember and thank them for their service.

Christopher has been nominated by his case-manger to receive a special wish.  He has cerebral palsy and resides in a nursing home.  Due to unfortunate circumstances, he has no family or friends who visit him.  Within his facility he brings much joy to all who know him.  His greatest wish is to go to “Dollywood” and see the beautiful fall leaves in the mountains at their peak.  He does need to have a nurse and a CNA accompany him for the trip to Tennessee.  Please help us raise the $1,800 needed to cover the costs to make Christopher’s wish come true!

Evelyn C., 92, Hatboro, PA

Thanks to our generous donors, Evelyn will soon have her air conditioner!

Evelyn’s health has been failing over the last few years.  She is cared for by her sister Mary with whom she shares a house.  They do have central air conditioning on the first floor but Evelyn’s bedroom is on the second.  It gets incredibly hot and it is uncomfortable to sleep.  Many nights she ends up sleeping on her couch to stay cool.  She has been nominated to receive a portable air conditioner for her bedroom.

Both Evelyn and Mary were involved with the Bux Mont Art League for many years.  Evelyn also enjoyed participating and helping with events at her local senior center before she had to give up driving.

Constance H., 89, Ocean Park, ME

We are thrilled to say that Constance will be having her wish granted!  Thank you to all who fund-raised and donated to make this happen!

Constance lives in a retirement community and always goes out of her way to help others.  She has delivered mail to residents who cannot get out, watched others pets while they were in hospital, and made and brought meals to those who are sick.  She also started a book club which has helped many who were feeling isolated become more social.  She has wanted to have her teeth fixed for many years so she could eat her favorite foods again and so she could feel more confident when she smiles. Because she lives on a fixed income, she cannot afford to have them fixed on her own.
