Admin for the PSCC group, Vanessa Siemens-Ford shares, the week started out with the residents of Abbeyfield receiving their hampers along with a few special guests who sang some Christmas carols for them.

Then on Tuesday, December the 17th, 2019 all 120 Peace Villa residents received their hampers.

Siemens-Ford shares, one more party is coming on the 20th and that will wrap up the 2019 Adopt a Senior program.

“There were smiles, there was laughing and also many tears. Many couldn’t believe some stranger would do such a thing for them,” said Siemens-Ford.

PSCC FB group is also providing help to the seniors past the holiday season. When information is brought forward of a senior in need, it’s shared to get what is needed to help the situation.

Siemens-Ford shares a lot of seniors in the area have little to no family are living on a fixed income trying to cover the cost of living, which does not leave a lot of room for extras or treats.
