> The Brazos Valley Area Agency on Aging

 

Many elderly seniors feel alone, especially during the Christmas holidays, because they no longer have a family or are physically unable to visit friends and family. These seniors hold a special place in our hearts. Senior Christmas is a collaborative gifting effort that enables the friends and neighbors of the Brazos Valley to give hope, spread cheer, and make smiles happen for our seniors.

Each year we identify homebound and nursing home seniors who have very little or no contact with their families during the holidays and ask them for wish lists.  We collect clothing, large print books, and other requested items. Volunteers assemble these items into gift bags and deliver them to nursing homes and residents throughout the Brazos Valley. Last year volunteers spent 125 hours assembling and delivering gifts to over 650 Brazos Valley seniors.

The Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG) and the Brazos Valley Area Agency on Aging (BVAAA) have served as hosts for Senior Christmas for almost 20 years, covering all overhead expenses for the event.  All Senior Christmas gifts are provided by donation only, and all work is performed by volunteers.

Service is the rent we pay for living
