Update: Dreams for Seniors is currently working on granting two dreams:
Is that title too cheesy?
Yes? Okay, then let’s just call this post “Christmas Time Senior Shout-Out!”
That’s right, ´tis the time of year to use the word ´tis and to highlight a great project that is doing some senior good! This month’s Senior Shout-Out recipient is Dreams for Seniors Charity.
Dreams for Seniors Charity is a non-profit organization located in Pekin, Illinois. The idea behind the program is similar to that of the Make a Wish foundation, but for seniors. So, say your mother or father would like to reconnect with an old friend or family member that they’ve lost contact with. The organization can help with resources needed to locate that person.
Of course, the organization assists with some basic needs as well, like buying a computer for someone who lives alone so they can email their friends and family. Or finding tickets to events in the area for a night out on the town.
Any dream is considered and the only requirement is that you have to be in Illinois. So for all of those Illinoisans out there, check it out!
In short, Dreams for Seniors finds the resources to make dreams come true for our elders.
´Tis nice, huh?
