10th Annual Christmas Store

St. Paul Lutheran sponsored its 10th Annual Christmas Store at the Simla Good Samaritan Nursing Home on Monday, December 7.  A team of 12 volunteers gathered and set up the display of items so the 29 residents could browse through with an assistant helping them shop.  The residents who were not mobile enough to join in the activity itself, still got to shop through a staff member at Good Sam.

The residents look forward each year to this wonderful opportunity since they can’t get out and purchase gifts for their loved ones.  Thanks to the generosity of our congregation and friends, each year has such an amazing variety of gifts!   We want to thank those who provided gifts as well as made gifts such as crocheted or knitted hats, scarves, afghans and candy.

THANK YOU ONE & ALL for this heart-warming experience of helping our elderly residents at the Simla Good Samaritan Nursing Home.

Sally, Nancy and Carolyn
