(Superior, Neb.) – You can help seniors feel connected and at peace with a simple gift.
We’re raising money to purchase a flat-screen TV for every resident’s room at Good Samaritan Society – Superior.
For many seniors, watching television can be a very healthy activity. Just like you, our residents like to keep up with current events. I’m sure you can relate to the comfort you feel when you have a television on in your room, just for the noise.
Watching television does much more than just pass the time — it can help structure daily life. For some residents, it provides mental stimulation and give them an opportunity to be social with others as they discuss programs they’ve watched.
Resident Edythe Francis is excited to have a new TV in her room. “When my husband comes to visit, we like to watch TV together,” she says. “It gives us time to communicate about news, sports and things we like, and what has happened throughout the day.”
One way you can support this fundraiser to purchase TVs is by purchasing an ornament for our Giving Tree fundraiser. The Giving Tree will take place through December.
With your donation, an ornament will be hung on our Christmas tree in honor or in memory of a loved one. Ornaments are available in the following categories:
- Blue angel: $10 each
- Red angel: $25 each
- Gold angel: $50 each
To help make this Christmas merrier for residents by purchasing an ornament, please call us at (402) 879-4791.
