“Santas for Seniors”

In partnership with the agency that offers the popular “Meals on Wheels”
program, the Hamilton County Democratic Party (HCDP) is sponsoring the “Santas
for Seniors” project, collecting items for gender-neutral gift bags that will be
distributed to homebound seniors who otherwise might not be remembered
during the holiday season.

Each gift bag – which will be packaged and delivered by the “Wheels” organizers –
will be valued at $25. A list of suggested donations is below. ($25 checks will also
be accepted; make them out to the Southeast Tennessee Area Agency on Aging
