IVGID Tip: Support seniors this holiday season

For more information about the Holiday Giving Program or other IVGID Senior Programs, visit the Incline Village Recreation center or call Jennifer Moore at 775-832-1302.

The holidays are filled with celebration, but for some this time reminds them of the loss of loved ones, especially seniors.

Warm a senior's heart this holiday season by participating in the Annual Holiday Giving Program.

Here's how you can support local seniors this holiday season:

Nominate a senior. Anyone can nominate a senior for The Holiday Giving Program! Nomination forms can be obtained at the Recreation Center, Cornerstone Community Church, or the D.W. Reynolds Building, starting Nov. 24. The deadline for nominations is Dec. 5.

Contribute a gift to the Holiday Giving Program. Donors may choose to provide a specific gift item from the wish list of a nominee, donate to the supplemental Raley's gift card for a holiday meal, or contribute a monetary donation to allow staff to purchase wish list items as directed. General donations received for the program are eligible for tax credits and the appropriate tax ID number will be distributed. Any private donations may remain anonymous, if so desired.

Volunteer your time. Help wrap gifts, write cards, and deliver gifts to the seniors. A warm note or smile can make someone's day.
