“Adopt A Senior” Christmas Project

For the past nine years MDJH has partnered with St. Pat’s Mercy Home to provide gifts for their seniors who may not have anyone to give them a gift. They are too often forgotten at this time of year. Ours are the only gift they may receive.

We receive a list of wish items for seniors. Some lists are bigger than others and some are quite small.

Students are asked to bring in a monetary donation toward the purchase of clothing items requested. Students are also able to bring in the following items:

  • Dry shampoo (Batiste) for our female residents
  • Unscented Hairspray
  • Shampoo
  • Unscented body lotion
  • Razors for our male residents (Gillette, Xtreme or Bic)
  • Body wash
  • Baby powder
  • Socks (thin ankle socks that can be worn inside a shoe)
  • Deodorant gel (something with low scent)
  • Treats (chewing gum, soft cheesies, chocolate bars (no nuts or chewy parts))
  • Hair brushes
  • Hair elastics
  • Wool
  • Knitting needles
  • Art supplies (residents love to paint small pictures for their rooms/family)
  • Coloring leads, markers
  • Gift Cards – Tim Hortons/Dollarama (Rec Therapy takes residents on outings and they often stop at Tims to get residents coffee, etc.)

Every homeroom will also sign a card for the seniors.

This is a very heartwarming project. Thank you for your continued support.

All donations must be handed in to Homeroom teachers by Friday, December 10th.
