As part of Assistance League of Kansas City’s Senior Outreach Service program, members partnered with Northland Shepherd’s Center in Gladstone, MO to supply food to local senior citizens during the holiday season.
Assistance League of Kansas City volunteers purchased and picked up food from ALDI Foods and assembled and distributed Blue Blizzard bags and White Holiday Helper bags at Northland Shepherd’s Center. The Blue Blizzard bags contained food items that homebound seniors could have on hand that were easy to open and heat up in case inclement weather prevented meal deliveries. The White Holiday Helper bags contained food items which could compliment the seniors’ holiday meals, including pumpkin pie, and were distributed during the December holiday season.
Knowing we provided comfort and assistance to homebound senior citizens during the holidays fills the hearts of Assistance League of Kansas City volunteers with an abundance of joy….we make a difference.
