Bring holiday cheer to Filipino American seniors in need. Please contribute or help out Dec. 20.
Last year we distributed more than 100 gift baskets to isolated Filipino American seniors. This year, our target is to assemble 150 baskets for Filipino American senior citizens in need.
The baskets will be filled with winter items such as glove, hats, scarves, blankets, socks and thermal underwear. We will also fill the baskets with toiletries such as soap lotion, toothpaste, shampoo, band aid, q-tips — as well as canned goods, fresh fruit, a bag of rice and a first aid kit.
Please help us by donating some of the items mentioned above or by giving cash donations so we can purchase the basket items. If you wish to donate or volunteer, please contact Portia Guerin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your donation is tax-deductible, and 100% of your cash donations will go toward the purchase of the holiday gift basket items.Checks should be made out to FILIPINO AMERICAN NETWORK.
We will distribute the gift bags to the seniors attending the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago’s Annual Senior’s Party on December 20, 2008, at the Rizal Center.
