wreath door 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (11/7/19) — The District Long Term Care Ombudsman Program requests individuals and organizations in the Green River Area Development District area to contribute to the 2019 Silver Bells project.

Heather Mullican, District Long Term Care Ombudsman, and other GRADD staff are coordinating a collection of items to fill gift bags for delivery to two personal care homes in the region at Christmastime.
 
Suggested items for the bags include soft drinks, chips, Chapstick, tissues, drink packets for bottled water, instant coffee, socks, raisins, peanut butter snack crackers, cheese snack crackers, snack cakes, gloves and bottled water, organizers said.
 
“Residents of personal care homes continue to be an often overlooked population in our communities,” Mullican said.”Through Silver Bells, we want to bring awareness to the community while also brightening the holidays for the residents we serve.”
 
Donations can be brought to the GRADD office during regular business hours at 300 GRADD Way in Owensboro, with a collection cutoff of Dec. 9. Monetary donations are also welcome and will be used to purchase items to complete the bags, as well as to buy fresh fruit for the bags, GRADD spokeswoman Kim Wells indicated.
