SPREADING A BIT OF CHEER

Rose Park Neighborhood Association and Heart of Ida teamed up this holiday season to provide 225 gift bags to our older adult residents housed at Lutheran Towers, Redondo Plaza, and Edgewater Skilled Nursing Center.

Holiday gift bags

The bags included an assortment of personal care products provided by Heart of Ida. Residents also received hot cocoa, tea and a homemade ornament from Rose Park Neighborhood volunteers.

We hope these small gifts bring a bit of cheer to the older adult population living in and around the Rose Park Neighborhood, especially during a time when so many are in isolation due to COVID19.

In 2021, we will continue to work with our community partners to provide solutions to the food insecurity of our older adult population, as well as connect residents to FREE digital inclusion resources.

The Heart of Ida ‘helps older adults preserve independence as long as possible, and provide cheer when assisted living is necessary.’
