"Adopt a Family" and "Support a Senior" with POWER® Operation Holiday
POWER CHANGES LIVES (“POWER”) is pleased to announce OPERATION HOLIDAY 2020. This year, POWER, through donors, will sponsor over twenty (20) “adopted” families, fifty (50) senior citizens, and the homeless in New Jersey. These families have been identified by various non-profit, community and local resources. It is the goal that each family is “adopted” by donors to receive items from their wish list. Operation Holiday has already launched and will end on December 11, 2020 to provide support to families by Christmas.
Donors will help families like the Johnson’s who, in addition to losing close relatives due to COVID-19, struggled this year battling with different medical issues that has caused the mother to be in and out of the hospital. As a result, the family is working with the hospitals to resolve medical expenses and in need of some assistance during the holiday season. Their wish list includes items such as slippers, headsets for distance learning, anything "Ryan's World” or "JoJo Siwa", or Marcia Jacobsen, a single mother with a 6-year-old Lathan. She was diagnosed with sickle cell early in her life—which causes chronic pain—and she suffered a stroke a few weeks ago. Through the grace of God, she has persevered and is currently undergoing rehab…taking it “one day at a time.”
Those interested in donating should visit Operation Holiday 2020 choosing a family to “adopt”. Donors are provided the family background story and wish list. Once a family is selected, they are contacted by POWER providing them with the family’s full name, contact phone and shipping information. Donors can also opt to give cash donation directly through Donate by PayPal and can always select whether to remain anonymous.
“COVID-19 has deeply impacted families and our economy. Parents are struggling to provide food, secure jobs, pay medical bills and rent. They are often faced with the daunting choice “food or medicine” and for the holidays “rent or gifts.” Holidays for many of these families is glaring – Christmas may not come this year” said Penny Lopez, Chairman. “We are more than confident that our amazing local and extended communities will step up and meet the need where no opportunity to help this year is unmet”.
In addition to Christmas wish lists, POWER is also requesting donations for Senior Connect® that provides Kindle Fire 7 tablet technology to high-risk Seniors, virtually connecting them with their physicians, houses of faith, family and community wellness checks.
