So glad to be able to spread smiles to people often forgotten or have no one to do special things for them. The pictures and stories of the joy spread always makes my day!

Some of these people have no one and its so rewarding to help put a smile on their faces. My favorites are the ones from Lady of the Woods. They are so happy everytime we send a care package and it feels so good to be part of it.

This is a great new organization. I’ve assisted with several social events for seniors at a wonderful local nursing home; very worthwhile. The organization has also provided holiday themed food and gifts for residents at two nursing homes in our area. I’m very proud to assist with this mission.

I volunteered to help at the Christmas party. What an honor it was to serve and present gifts to the seniors at the nursing home. There was pure joy in their smiles. The smiles for seniors group and their work is awesome!!

I'm honored to support this organization. Providing gifts and snacks to these seniors is my way of honoring my own parents who are both gone. Such a wonderful group - the seniors and the volunteers!
