Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more and more difficult to get together with family to celebrate such a wonderful time of year. This is when we stumbled upon Socks for Seniors, a project brought forth by Cheryl Dickinson, Social Service Coordinator at Ridge View Commons. We raised over $400 to buy blankets, socks, hats, and other warm accessories for the seniors so they could also celebrate the holidays. Along with clothing and blankets, we also made over 200 cards for the residents of Ridge View Commons.
Throughout October, The Breaking BEARriers Club partnered with CityServe and The Rotary Club to raise money in order to buy school supplies for families who are struggling financially during the pandemic.
