Enriching lives since 1967...
There's still time to support families and seniors
 in need through Holiday Hope
For many of us, the holiday season is accompanied by many lists - gifts to buy, cards to send out to loved ones, and family meals to prepare. But for families like Rachel's, the holiday season means something else - it means even more stress and anxiety about bills.
Rachel's family applied for help through Holiday Hope for the first time last year. As a single mom, Rachel was struggling to make ends meet, and she knew that without our help, her kids might not get a holiday meal, let alone any presents under the tree. But thanks to generous Holiday Hope donors, she was able to make a special meal for her family and they experienced something priceless - smiles and laughs filling their home as the kids opened their presents.  
We are still seeking donations to support Holiday Hope! By supporting Holiday Hope, you can make a real difference- and brighten the holiday season - for those in need in our local community.
Our Holiday Hope program gives local families and seniors in need more than hope. It provides personalized gifts and a meal during the holidays. With your help , we can help make this holiday season a little better for a neighbor. And you can be assured that your donation will stay right here in the community - Holiday Hope serves households in the Stillwater Area School District.

Please make a donation today . You can give a neighbor in need HOPE this holiday season.

Happy Holidays!

A reminder that the Senior Centers (Stillwater and Bayport) will be closed starting December 27 through Monday January 2.  We will open on Tuesday, January 3 with all of our regularly scheduled programs.
