Amherstburg Stuff-a-Stocking for Seniors Program Kicks Off With Big Donation
Caesars Windsor has helped kick off the 2018 Amherstburg stuff-a-stocking for seniors donation drive with a $1,500 donation..
Since 2013, Amherstburg Community Services has collected donations every year to ensure seniors at risk of loneliness and isolation receive a gift during the holidays through their Stuff-a-Stocking campaign.
“This donation really gets us off on the right foot and we can’t thank Caesars Windsor enough for stepping forward like this,” said ACS executive director Kathy DiBartolomeo. “Giving to our local seniors, many of whom won’t see many, if any, other gifts come their way this year, is one of the best ways to truly get into the holiday spirit. We’re really looking forward to seeing our community step up yet again.”
Caesars Windsor isn’t stopping with their donation, as they will also give staff the opportunity to volunteer to help prepare the stockings for delivery. According to Kelly Wolfe Gregoire, Vice President of human resources at Caesars Windsor, the staff and management there are thrilled to be involved in the program.
“We are proud to work with Amherstburg Community Services to help older individuals live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives at every stage of the aging process,” Wolfe Gregoire said.
Donations are now being collected at ACS, 179 Victoria Street South in Amherstburg. They need small gifts that can easily fit into stockings such as small toiletries, candy and treats, warm socks, homemade cards, and other small items.
