Gifts for Seniors has been serving thousands of socially isolated seniors over the past 25 years. Our holiday program began as a volunteer-led initiative at Hennepin County in 1994. Over the years we grew to serve the entire 7-county metro area and in 2008, became our own 501c3 public charity.
"It is due to support like yours that we are able to help our neighborhood elderly remain not only healthy, but safely and comfortably in their homes rather than early nursing home placement." Chris Langer, North-End South Como Block Nurse Program
"Gifts for Seniors is a wonderful charity. Not only do the forgotten Seniors receive gifts, but also a personal visit from someone. Sometimes, the visit is worth more than the gift. If your company is looking for a new program to support and give back to, please consider Gifts for Seniors. It is one of our most treasured events." Tracie Baumann, Operations Accounting Manager at Wells Fargo Insurance Services
Gifts for Seniors supports life-affirming social visits for isolated elders in the community. With the critical support of volunteers, donors, and community partners, Gifts for Seniors strives to alleviate the loss of connection to others and the spiral into devastating loneliness.
