Reaching out is important all year round and it is especially heartwarming during the holiday season. For some the holidays are a challenging time.
Struggling families and single seniors often experience loneliness, anxiety or depression. Listen's Holiday Basket Program creates that much needed connection and spreads the joy of the season. Recipient families complete a wish list for warm clothing, a special toy or other gift items. Local families, businesses and other groups donate their time and resources to sponsor a household.
Holiday Baskets are provided to qualifying households with children under the age of seventeen or seniors over the age of sixty-five. Families are eligible based on monthly household income limits. Applications are accepted beginning October 1st.
