For the last eleven years the American Red Cross in Pickaway County has gone into area nursing homes to gather Christmas Wish Lists and with the help of the community has managed to provide holiday cheer each year to the residents there.  There are 311 seniors in need in 5 different nursing homes in the area.

Volunteers go to local nursing homes and gather wish lists from residents.  Mostly on the lists are simple tolietries and self care products, demonstrating the needs of the seniors.  The Red Cross then places Christmas Trees in local area business with these lists for patrons to grab to fulfill the donation.  Then simply drop it off at Wesbanco, 1210 North Court Street, Circleville.

Gift bags are due December 7th.
