Elder Elves reaching out to community

To the editor:

The holiday season will soon be upon us and the Senior Center at Lower Village in Kennebunk is again organizing its Elder Elves Program.

Elder Elves is a group of dedicated volunteers who prepare and deliver holiday gift bags to people who may be isolated from friends and family during the holiday season. The program has been in existence for many years and serves more than 50 people each year.

The recipients of this program are referred to us by the local service agencies in our area. Each gift bag contains items that are new and fulfill modest needs of the recipients. These gift items are made possible through the generous monetary donations from the surrounding communities.

The monetary contributions assist us in defraying the costs of this program. With costs rising, Elder Elves is reaching out to members of the community to assure the continuation of this important heartwarming program.

Contributions can be mailed to The Senior Center at Lower Village, 175 Port Road, Kennebunk.
