Christmas may be a magical time for many but for some it can be especially lonely and painful. A group of locals in Uintah County are doing their part to ease the loneliness of elderly community members this month by ensuring that each receive some gifts and necessities with the help of the Meals-on-wheels delivery team and the Golden Age Center. Tiffany Henline was among the group that started the effort last year and is doing her part to spread the word, asking the community for donations. “I love seniors,” shares Henline. “I am heartbroken that our society has tossed them out and left them lonely and abandoned. I want to make sure they each know they are loved and that they matter.” New items such as blankets, socks, slippers, adult coloring books, puzzles, colored pencils, puzzles, large print crosswords or books, prepackaged treats and food, reusable shopping bags and gift bags are among the items being requested. Grocery gift cards and donations are also very appreciated. All items can be dropped off at the Golden Age Community Center or the New Star Real Estate Office. They hope to have donations by Friday, December 16th, so deliveries can get underway.
