Seniors often need to make difficult decisions between buying food or personal care items and now that San Diego County is in the restrictive Purple Tier, it will be difficult for seniors to shop for the essentials. The nonprofit West PACE is hosting their first-ever “Everyday Necessities Drive for North County Seniors” from Nov. 30-Dec. 31, 2020.
The region’s stay-at-home orders have made it more challenging for seniors and family caregivers to shop for essentials to meet their everyday needs. You can make a difference for local seniors by dropping off donations of small gift items and toiletries at Gary and Mary West PACE in San Marcos on Tuesday, Dec. 22 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. All donors who drive-in to drop-off items at West PACE will receive a coffee and a holiday treat! Please note: this event will be socially distanced and participants will need to wear a face covering.
We have set up this site to collect financial donations for those in our community who are not able to make it to our center but are interested in supporting our holiday drive efforts.
Funds raised from this campaign will be used to purchase additional items to create holiday gift packages and new year bundles. Extra items will be kept in our "Care Closet" for our seniors to select items as-needed in 2021.
Our wishlist includes warm clothing accessories like scarves, mittens, gloves, and socks; fleece blankets; games and puzzles; masks; hand sanitizer; shampoo; conditioner; lip balm/lip gloss; hand soap; toothpaste; toothbrushes, and more. A complete list is on our website, www.westpace.org.
Thank you for your consideration to support our campaign and for vulnerable seniors in North County San Diego.
