Gift ideas include robes, nightgowns, house slippers, socks, blankets/throws, crossword/jigsaw puzzles, ergonomic pens, emergency radios, batteries, night lights, first aid kits, coloring books, crayons, and gift cards. Monetary donations are also welcome and will be used to purchase gifts.

Unwrapped gifts will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 7 at the Community Resources office, 125 W. Mountain Street.

Gifts will be delivered to homebound participants of the Meals on Wheels program.
