Socks for Seniors
Socks for Seniors Drive Begins
Back to News & Events
November 8, 2012 – As a way of giving back this holiday season, Montachusett Home Care is again sponsoring “Socks for Seniors” in cooperation with Fidelity Bank in Leominster. It is a way to give not only to our clients, but to many other low-income elders in our community. Montachusett Home Care provides in-home services for elders and disabled adults and provides support for their caregivers.
For many elders on fixed income, the last thing they think about is buying new socks for themselves. They are more concerned about paying their monthly bills, or trying to help out their families, or saving a little money so that they can buy Christmas gifts for their grandchildren. They figure no one is going to look at their feet, so new socks do not matter.
New socks do matter. Wearing socks helps promote healthier feet and overall better health. Socks help with balance, decrease fall risk, and keep the feet in better condition for those suffering from diabetes, arthritis, circulation problems or nerve damage.
Let’s help those seniors who would benefit most from a new pair of socks. Donation boxes will be in the lobby at Montachusett Home Care located at Crossroads Office Park, 680 Mechanic St. Leominster and also at the two Fidelity Banks in Leominster, at 75 Main St. and 9 Leominster Connector. If you would like to bring in a pair of brand new socks for a man or a woman, we would appreciate your donation. Cash donations are also accepted.
During the holiday season, Montachusett Home Care case managers will be distributing socks to seniors in the 21 cities and towns in North Central Massachusetts that are served by our agency.
Please contact Jeanine DiMarzio at Montachusett Home Care for more information. Jeanine can be reached at 978-537-7411 x240 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org about your donation or if you know a senior in need.
