CRA is hosting an donation-based food drive, to provide low-income seniors with a hand delivered holiday gift basket filled with essential groceries to make a holiday meal, a present, and hygiene products.
With COVID-19 still sweeping the nation, much of the senior population will be spending the holidays in isolation this year, without the comfort and company of their families.
As part of Colorado Retina's commitment to Colorado's seniors we partnered with the Colorado Gerontological Society to participate in their Annual Holiday Baskets for Seniors Project. Our team will be hosting an in-clinic donation-based food drive, to provide low-income seniors with a hand delivered holiday gift basket filled with essential groceries to make a holiday meal, a present, and hygiene products.
Now until December 18th we are accepting designated canned and boxed food items to be dropped off at any Colorado Retina office. Requested boxed food items include: stuffing, mac n' cheese, rice, (Minute Made, Rice a Roni, Uncle Ben's, etc.), quinoa, meal-in-a-box mashed or au gratin potatoes, cookies, crackers, dried fruit or cereal. Canned items include: vegetables (green beans, corn, mixed veggies, carrots, etc.), soup, chili, or stew, gravy, beans, chicken or tuna, and applesauce. NO glass/breakable packaged items or expired food.
Our team goal is to “adopt” 50 local seniors and raise an additional $1,250+ in cash donations. If we hit our goal, we will provide FIFTY seniors with a real holiday experience and cover the additional 30% increase that the Holiday Basket Project is experiencing compared to previous years, due to COVID-19.
Join us, together we can help our Colorado senior community get through what can be a tough and lonely season, all while spreading holiday joy!
