CVCAA Staff Grant Senior Christmas Wishes
For the past 14 years, Meals for the Elderly has held their annual Seniors Still Believe Tree Event. Set up in Sunset Mall, a Christmas tree is filled with red ornaments, each with a homebound elderly individual's name, Christmas gift wish, and sizes if necessary. This year, CVCAA Executive Director Mike Burnett decided it was time CVCAA joined together to give back this holiday season.
All of the CVCAA pooled together their money and selected 5 local seniors from the tree to surprise! Unfortunately, every year there are seniors whose ornament is not picked from the tree, and Meals for the Elderly try to put together something to get them. Our staff decided to get 5 gift bags full of stocking stuffers for Meals for the Elderly to distribute to the rest of the seniors so everyone gets a gift! Everyone at CVCAA is excited to keep this new tradition going next year!
