CHANGE A LIFE, DONATE YOUR OLD DEVICE 

Ruby, 12, repurposes old Ipads for seniors to use to communicate with their loved ones near and far. All they need is Wifi and a little training. The Ipads open up a whole new world for them. 

DONATE PET SUPPLIES

Our Kid Board, ages 9-12, provides low income seniors with free or reduced costs pet food. We have a pet food pantry that could always use more food. We have a catch, neuter and release program and also provide senior cats for adoption to nursing homes at NO cost to them. Mail Kid Board member, Leo, any dry pet food to 102 W Stephenson Ave Harrison, AR 72601

Adopt a resident by pledging $40 for a month. This is the single best gift. It doubles their income and allows for freedom to buy what they want most.

HELP LOCALLY

How can you help locally? Call your local facility and ask the activity director or social worker what the residents need most. We recommend donating common items of low value such as velcro shoes, house coats, sleeping gowns, elastic waist sweats with matching tops, updated games such as checkers, card games and 500 piece or less puzzles, updated hygiene products like small bottles of Dove shampoo and conditioner. Have an old TV? See if a specific resident might need it.
