[ARCHIVED] Activity Boxes for Seniors

Activity Boxes for Seniors

Realizing the pandemic has been especially difficult for senior residents of Biddeford who are homebound and therefore isolated, the Biddeford Recreation staff at the Ross Center has partnered with Meals on Wheels to put together activity boxes to deliver to their homes. Each box will contain brand new items such as puzzles, word search books, playing cards and other activities to help pass the time in a positive way, as well as a variety of individually-wrapped goodies for them to enjoy. We hope they will bring a smile to their faces and hours of enjoyment.

Biddeford Recreation purchased enough supplies to fill 25 boxes and plan to coordinate with the Meals on Wheels team to begin delivery this week. If you would like to make a donation to help them keep up the effort, as there are many more seniors to reach out to in the community, a drop box has been set up in the hallway of the community center for anyone wishing to drop items off at their convenience. Thanks so much in advance!

Items Needed:
New puzzles
Brain Teaser Games & Books
Individually wrapped snacks
Playing cards
Memory Games for Adults
Colored pencils & markers
New Periodicals which may be of interest to the age group
