Slippers For Seniors

Slippers For Seniors

From Sue Whitaker

I am raising money for "Slipper Parties" I throw at assisted living and Senior group homes. To this often-forgotten group of Seniors, a new pair of slippers is like a million bucks to them.

Having visited various family members over the years in assisted living and Senior group homes, I witnessed the loneliness and sadness of so many often-forgotten Seniors who rarely or never received visitors. I reflected on my own family members and how sad it would have been had they not had visitors from their families. This deeply touched me, and I resolved to try to do something about it in some small way to the best of my ability. I created the nonprofit "Slippers For Seniors" and raise money to purchase slippers as well as get slippers donated to go to assisted living and group homes and throw a "Slipper Party" and give each Senior a new pair of slippers. I had no idea the impact this small gesture would have on them. You would have thought I had given  them a million bucks! It amazing how meaningful and entertaining a new pair of slippers and a few cookies can be to this beautiful group of individuals. With your help, I will continue to reach out to as many homes and Seniors as I can and try to bring a smile to each of their faces with something as simple as a pair of slippers. Thank you for your support in helping me "throw my slipper parties!"
