The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta is spreading cheer this holiday season to our seniors in assisted living and nursing homes.  During these times, many Seniors are not able to celebrate with family.  To help make their holiday season a little brighter, we will be making up gift bags to deliver to them.  Donations for these gift bags are being accepted through Monday, December 7th. Items can be dropped off at any of the Sparta Public Schools, there are bins at each entrance.  The items we are collecting are: Tissues-small individual packs, Lip Balm, Anti-Bacterial Soap, Hand Sanitizer, Hand Cream, Throw Blanket, Deck of Cards, Coloring Books, Colored Pencils, Wool Socks for Men, Fuzzy Socks for ladies (with grippes on the bottom), Hershey Chocolate Bars and Shampoo.

The kids can get involved too.  We would love for handmade pictures and cards to be included in each gift bag. These can be dropped off with the donations. 

The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta is comprised of women from Sparta and the surrounding area who have come together as friends to foster goodwill while organizing events and activities that bring our community together.  Each year the JWCS raises and distributes thousands of dollars to local organizations and charities.  To learn more about JWCS membership, visit www.jwcsparta.org, find us on Facebook or email jwcsparta@gmail.com.
