Gifts of Grace Program Provides Christmas Presents to Nursing Residents, LIFE Program Participants

Published: Monday, September 26, 2016

Autumn is here, and soon the Christmas season will be upon us.

Again this year, Lutheran SeniorLife wishes to provide Christmas presents to our more than 500 personal care residents at St. John and Passavant Communities, and more than 700 LIFE Program participants in Armstrong, Beaver, Butler and Lawrence Counties through our Gifts of Grace Program.

We are asking for your support to help make this dream a reality.

There are several ways to participate in Gifts of Grace:


Adopt a senior

               Provide a small gift and a warm, memorable Christmas for someone who may otherwise not receive a gift.

Christmas shopping

Shop for, collect and donate small items to be sold in the Christmas Shops sponsored each year at St. John and Passavant Communities. This gives the residents an opportunity to purchase gifts for their families.

Monetary donations

Monetary gifts are used to purchase gifts and support special Christmas programs and events for the residents
               and program participants.


If you would like to participate in the Gifts of Grace Program by adopting a senior or by donating to the Christmas Shop, please contact us by November 16.
