Donations Needed For “Adopt A Senior Angel Program”
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A local spa has asked for help in their annual push to collect Christmas gifts for seniors in need.
While many people would agree that Christmas mainly focuses on children, Nashville's Essence Day Spa is working to make sure those senior citizens who don't have family to celebrate the holidays also get a special gift under the tree.
For the past several years Keisha Beard and Essence Day Spa have held an "Adopt A Senior Angel Program." Every year spa employees decorate a tree, hanging ornaments with the names of seniors in need. This year they have 100 seniors to adopt.
"We have some seniors that need a lot. You know, from a double amputee senior that has no family that needs a new wheelchair to a senior that has breast cancer that has no family," said Beard.
Beard said they'd like to collect all the gifts by December 19th and then deliver them on the 22nd. For more on how you can adopt a senior stop by the Essence Day Spa on Jefferson Street.
