The response to a drive to gather gifts for local elderly has been good with today as the last main day to contribute. While donations will be accepted and appreciated next week, the organizers of the effort are hoping to begin organizing donations today so they are ready for delivery next week. “We could still use personal hygiene items, slippers, socks, and any foods that have shelf life and can be prepared easily or are ready to eat,” shares coordinator Tiffany Henline. “We also need more reusable grocery bags.” Tiffany has been part of this effort since the beginning and says that all involved are there simply because they love the elderly and want them to feel important and loved. The recipients of Meals on Wheels in Uintah County will each receive a gift bag custom made to their needs. Donations can be dropped off today at the New Star Real Estate Office or the Golden Age Community Center in Vernal.
