156 gifts delivered to Richmond seniors from community members

Rosewood Manor residents received a little holiday cheer on Christmas morning, as 156 gifts were delivered by staff from Richmond individuals and families.

As part of the stocking stuffers for seniors campaign, Richmondites selected an individual’s gift wish list from a Christmas tree set up at a local London Drugs, shopped for the items and included personalized notes and cards. The campaign ran for its second year in an attempt to combat loneliness and isolation that may be felt by Richmond seniors.

“Our residents’ Christmas was made just that more festive knowing that so many people took the time to shop for a wish list,” said Megan Van Walleghem, recreation and volunteer manager for the Rosewood Manor. “The generosity is truly appreciated.” 

Rosewood Manor is a Richmond-based 156 bed not-for-profit care facility that provides seniors with around the clock nursing care and supervision.
