If you haven’t yet adopted a senior citizen for the Christmas holidays, you have until Thursday, December 1 to contact the Senior Citizens Council of Madison and fill out your registration form. It takes only a minute or two, and the forms are available in the front lobby at the Madison Senior Center, 1161 S.W. Harvey Greene Drive.
The holiday season is often a difficult time for seniors, who may be widowed or have limited contact with families, or even no families at all. Some have limited incomes and little or no transportation for getting out and about.
The Adopt-A-Senior program is sponsored by the Senior Citizen’s Council to provide an opportunity for organizations, businesses and individuals who would like to make the holidays special once more for Madison’s elderly citizens and let them know that someone still cares.
About two dozen people and organizations have signed up already; those who would like to join in the effort to make the Christmas season a joyous one for a senior need to do so right away. Just swing by the Madison Senior Center before 5 p.m. Thursday.
For more information about the Adopt-A-Senior program, contact Valencia Johnson at the Senior Citizens Council of Madison, (850) 973-4241.
