Senior Christmas – Church Sponsorship

We are asking our local churches to help with this worthy cause. Here are some ways your congregation, youth programs, and Sunday School Classes can help:

  • Set up an “Adopt A Senior” Christmas tree for your church or Sunday School Class
  • Adopt a nursing home and donate requested items for about 10-40 senior residents in that home
  • Host a collection box in your church to collect socks, blankets, toiletries, or puzzle books
  • Write personal notes on Christmas cards to send encouragement and warmth
  • Make Christmas crafts in Children’s Sunday School or VBS to be included with the gifts
  • Make lap blankets by crochet or quilting
  • Schedule a day for the youth group or adult Sunday school class to assemble gifts.
  • Schedule a day for the youth group to deliver gifts to an area nursing home (mid-December)

You can select a county or nursing home based on individual preference or by matching the size to the organization. Each nursing home has 10-40 residents that we serve. Each county has 20-90 home-bound residents.

For more information, please email Senior.Christmas@bvcog.org, or call Susan Lightfoot at (979) 595-2801 ext 2035.
