Christmas in July at Care Resources: Nonprofit Seeks Donations for Community Members 55 Years and Older

Grand Rapids, Michigan, June 27, 2024 – Care Resources, a community-based program that promotes healthy and independent living while working to prevent nursing home placement, is collecting a variety of donations for people 55 years and older.

The organization is in need of items such as personal hygiene products, activity books and household essentials for participants. Donations will go toward the nonprofit’s Bingo Store, which allows bingo winners to “shop” for basic care products and other fun items, as well as holiday gift bags for participants this winter.

“Access to these everyday items mean the world to our participants, who are often on a very limited income,” said Karen Altom, Care Resources’ office manager who oversees the annual holiday bag initiative. “Such donations not only ensure participants have the essentials they need but can also bring them such joy.”
