Video: Holiday Assurance
LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – More than 300 senior citizens in eight counties are getting some additional reassurance for the holidays.
Volunteers from churches, Scout groups, businesses and civic clubs helped Contact Helpline fill more than 300 Reassurance gift packages with gloves, lap blankets, socks, hats scarves and other comforts to deliver to clients on the Contact Helpline Reassurance list.
“We have over 300 and we cover eight counties and we are preparing gift boxes for them where we deliver the boxes to them and talk to them and let them know someone cares for them during the holidays,” said Katrina Sunivelle, Contact Helpline.
The elderly are on the agency’s list to call regularly for welfare checkups and to provide friendly conversation.
