The "Be a Santa to a Senior" program gives back to older adults in our area who may be isolated seniors by offering gifts and companionship. The program is run by the local Home Instead Senior Care office in partnership with other area organizations. Home Instead Senior Care office provides assistance with senior's daily activities that aren't as easy for them to do as they used to be; thus, making it possible for them to live in their own home.
As part of the Lonesome Valley Quilt Guild's community project program, during 2013 LVQG has donated 142 quilts and blankets, plus 38 other smaller items, to six different area charities. They also donated 170 pounds of non-perishable food and $200 to the Yavapai Food Bank.
