The holiday season, for all its intended joy, can be a lonely time for many local seniors. In order to bring a smile to many seniors’ faces, Randolph Senior Adults Association (RSAA) is spreading Christmas cheer to area homebound seniors through the “Stockings of Care Campaign.” Now in its third year, the campaign provides a handmade stocking, filled with a variety of goodies, to homebound seniors across the county who are enrolled in RSAA’s Home-Delivered Meals program.
“Many seniors in our area are isolated, due to physical issues which limit their ability to drive, or because of the loss of a social support network due to relocation, aging or other factors,” said Mark Hensley, RSAA executive director. “Some of these seniors don’t get anything at Christmas, not even a visit, so when they receive a gift it just brightens their day.”
The Sew Day Ladies, who are part of the Randolph Quilter’s Guild, hand-sewed more than 200 felt stockings for this year’s campaign. The Sew-Busy Ladies Group, a local non-profit organization, hand-sewed 200 tote bags and tissue holders. Kayser-Roth Corporation donated 200 pairs of socks. Children from The Growing Place Child Care Center made handmade cards filled with joyful messages and many individuals—including RSAA Board Members and staff members—made financial contributions and donations of personal care items, snacks, candy, puzzles, and more. Zooland Civitan Club members stuffed the 200 stockings. Local volunteers, including 2019 Ms. Senior Randolph County Judy Newsome, delivered the stockings to homebound seniors.
“We hear so many wonderful responses from the recipients,” said Hensley. “Responses like, ‘Your thoughtfulness brought a big smile to my face,’ and ‘Thank you so much for the great surprise!”
Hensley added, “We are truly thankful for such an abundance of community support for this project”
Sponsors and contributing partners include: Randolph Quilters Guild/Sew Day Ladies; Sew-Busy Ladies Group; Kasyer-Roth Corporation; Zooland Civitan Club; Asheboro Rotary Club; Agape Sunday School Class/First United Methodist Church, Asheboro—In Memory of Lucas Horner; The Growing Place Child Care Center; staff members of RSAA and RCATS; Vicki Cox-Humphries; Louella Caison; Sandra Allen; Lonnie Keogh; Peggy Kilburn, and many friends of RSAA.
