Adopt-A-Concordia Resident for Christmas 2016
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 facility 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 gift ideas:
• Sweat suits
• Door wreaths
• Stamps and stationary
• Digital clocks with large num¬bers
• Sugar-free candy
• Hair salon gift certificates
• Magnifying glass
• Slippers or slipper socks
• Throws or blankets
• Sports memorabilia
