Lotions, Lip Balm Among Needs for Nursing Home Residents

Christmas gift redwhite 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/11/13) — While many purse strings may be tight this year, there is a way that even the smallest donations can make a big difference in the enjoyment of Christmas for others.

Donations are being sought for residents of Homestead Personal Care Home and Hillside Villa Care and Rehabilitation Center for shoebox sized gifts. There are approximately 70 people at each center.

Scott and Lillian Rogers are heading the charge asking businesses for donations of soaps, toothpaste, socks, gloves and deodorant.

The rest of what's needed now are lotions and lip balms like Chapstick. They are also seeking donations of dollar bills that will be placed in the residents Christmas cards.

“These things really come in handy in January,” said Lillian Rogers. “Sometimes, residents don't get as many family visits during the early part of the year due to bad weather. They need a lot of Chapstick and lotion.”

Scott Rogers said gloves, scarves and hats for the residents are on lay-away at Kmart and monetary donations will help pay the remainder of the money owed on the items.

Individuals, co-workers and churches may donate items or cash at either facility. Checks may be mailed. to: The Homestead PCH, 384 Thompson Ave., Madisonville, KY, 42431, attention Charlotte S. Adcock; Hillside Villa, 1500 Pride Ave., Madisonville, KY, 42431, attention Jeanetta Gillespie.

Lillian Rogers said a U.S. Postal worker will hand deliver the cards to the residents while Santa will be delivering gifts.
