AngelWish program spreads cheer to seniors

LifeStream is seeking donations and volunteers to help brighten the holidays for seniors who are isolated and alone in east-central Indiana. For many senior citizens across Indiana, the holiday season can be the loneliest time of year. That’s where LifeStream’s AngelWish comes in.

The program coordinates doorstep delivery of packages of food, personal care items, practical necessities and gifts. For over 20 years, generous businesses, clubs, organizations, churches and individuals have come together as a community to ensure the most vulnerable are not forgotten during the holidays.

Last year, LifeStream delivered 1,491 gift packages. LifeStream is excited to touch the lives of even more seniors this holiday season as the program is offered across their 12-county service area – Henry, Blackford, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Grant, Jay, Madison, Randolph, Rush, Union and Wayne counties.

Below is how individuals and organizations can support the AngelWish program:

Volunteer: LifeStream will need assistance in packaging gifts, as well as delivering gift bags to the AngelWish recipients.

Donate Items: LifeStream seeks donations of practical necessity items to place in this year’s bags. Suggested items include peanut butter, tuna, soups, bath soap, hand lotion, shampoo, deodorant, denture cleaner, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, dish washing liquid, tissue paper, etc. Pick up/drop off of items should be coordinated no later than Dec. 1. If you would like to drop off items, please call LifeStream at 765-759-3372 for the drop location nearest you.

Sponsor: Benefits can include logo and name listed on print and online materials, name listed in Streamlines newsletter delivered to over 3,500 homes and businesses, as well as the opportunity to provide promotional materials.

Monetary Donations: With every $25 donation, a senior will receive a gift bag and a requested gift of their choice. Checks should be made payable to LifeStream Services and mailed to 1701 Pilgrim Blvd., Yorktown, IN 47396. Please note AngelWish on the check.
