On Wednesday, July 25, Santa for Seniors will hold its annual “Christmas in July” cocktail party at TEW Galleries. The event will give attendees the opportunity to purchase inexpensive “senior friendly” items such as magnifying glasses, neck pillows, blankets, and many other gifts that can be given to lonely and homebound seniors on special occasions and especially during the holidays.

“Senior citizens are probably our loneliest and least considered group,” event chairperson Jill Sherman explained. “A little bitty gift makes them smile like the days when they were young and Santa Clause came to see them.”

Meals On Wheels Atlanta, through its Santa for Seniors program collects new, unwrapped “senior friendly” items such as big print books, bath or personal hygiene products, small blankets, slip-resistant slippers, personal fans, flashlights, or stationery. Items can be dropped off at SCS, 1705 Commerce Drive NW between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For ticket information about the Christmas in July party, please contact Steve Hargrove at shargrove@scsatl.org or (404) 605-8450.
