Carol Leighow began volunteering three years ago after she retired, but she’d been a supporter for many years — actively seeking out the blue barrels every holiday season to donate gifts.
“My heart just breaks for those at the holiday season, especially the elderly, who may be lonely and forgotten,” Carol said. “Hopefully through Gifts For Seniors they will receive a nice gift to put a smile on their face, warm their heart and to let them know they have not been forgotten. It is so important.”
Carol shares her talents by creating gift baskets and displaying the gifts for delivering agencies to choose. During the summer months she scours sales for bows, baskets and even display furniture. Our agency representatives see her at the operations center helping them “shop” for their senior clients.
Thank you, Carol, for your hard work and dedication to Gifts for Seniors!
