2018 Resident Christmas Appeal

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Dear Friend,

Rwsvchristmas Tea2017 100

What are your favorite things that come to mind when you think about Christmas? Perhaps it’s a favorite dish that your mom always makes. A favorite gift that you especially cherished from your spouse. A favorite memory of your children opening presents on Christmas morning.

As you get older, Christmas can become poignant as you recall the favorite people and traditions that are no longer part of your life. This is true for our residents, which is why we strive to make Christmas extra special for them at The Ridgewood at Shenango Valley. Despite the loss in their lives, it’s still a time to celebrate Christ’s birth, the love of family and friends and the joy of giving. Their Christmas can still be filled with a few of their favorite things - comfort, joy and laughter.

You make that possible by giving to the annual Resident Christmas Appeal. Because you give, each resident will receive a special present. For some of our residents without close family, it may be the only Christmas gift they receive. You can also make the fulfillment of a Christmas wish possible at The Ridgewood at Shenango Valley. This year we are hoping to receive enough donations to purchase a bird aviary, bringing a few more favorite things to our residents - the beauty and peace of nature and the enjoyment of hearing and watching the birds.

Will you help bring the magic of a few favorite things to The Ridgewood at Shenango Valley this
Christmas by making your best gift today? Thank you!
