The Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG) is helping to bring merriment to local and area seniors with its 20th annual Senior Christmas program.
Each year, seniors submit wish lists that are hung on Christmas trees around the Brazos Valley. The community is then invited to shop for the items on those lists, and volunteers turn them into gift bags and deliver them to area nursing homes.
Wish lists often contain requests for items like t-shirts, pajamas, sweatpants or body wash. The Senior Christmas program annually serves over 1,200 seniors in need.
Anyone interested in participating can pick up a Senior Christmas wish list at Brazos Valley Brewing Company and Mattrezzz Guys in Brenham; Kaylee Vavra, Realtor & Armstrong Properties in Caldwell; Engel & Volkers in Bryan; and Tune Up: The Manly Salon and Brenham National Bank in College Station.
The last day to drop off gifts is Wednesday, December 7th.
