Concordia Adopt A Resident for Christmas Project Announced

Jefferson Twp., PA – Each December, many of the locations in the Concordia Lutheran Ministries family participate in a program called “Adopt-A-Resident.” Skilled nursing and personal care residents provide the activities staff with a wish list. Then, employees, community members, churches, businesses and even independent living residents “adopt” a resident (or in some cases many residents) to make sure they have a gift to open for Christmas.

If interested in participating in the program, call the Concordia location of your choice below to “adopt” a resident. For those who prefer to send a general gift, the activities staff can suggest some newly purchased items that residents typically use. Items should be wrapped and labeled with either the resident’s name or, if it is a general gift, what the gift is, and can be dropped off at the appropriate facility.

Here are a few general gift ideas:

  • Sweat suits
  • Door wreaths
  • Stamps and stationary
  • Digital clocks with large numbers
  • Sugar-free candy
  • Hair salon gift certificates (at the location)
  • Magnifying glass
  • Slippers or slipper socks
  • Throws or blankets
  • Sports memorabilia
